Wellbeing For All
Wherever you're at in life, we can support you to be active
At Edinburgh Leisure we harness the power of physical activity and sport to tackle inequalities and combat the effects of inactivity. Each year we provide support to improve the lives of 10,000 people who face the greatest barriers to being active, including those affected by health conditions, disabilities, inequalities and poverty.
Our Active Communities team know the importance of physical activity and the role it plays in helping to improve health and wellbeing in our communities. Being more physically active is one of the best things we can do to improve our health and wellbeing.
We want to improve access and empower more people to make the choice to be physically active.
The services and activities detailed below will help people living on a low income or those experiencing inequalities to be active and improve their health, wellbeing, and quality of life.
Wherever you’re at in life we can offer you the support you need to be and stay active.
