Promoting and enabling physical activity through health and social care workforces
Being active has never been more important, for both our physical health and our mental wellbeing. Able to reduce the risk of Heart Disease, Type 2 Diabetes, Depression, Anxiety, and many other conditions, being physically active is widely considered a powerful solution, and backed by strong clinical evidence.
Health and social care workforces play a crucial role in promoting physical activity and enabling their patients to be active. By supporting the workforce, at Get Berkshire Active we can make sure everyone accessing healthcare services is empowered to be more active.
Our aim is to enhance the great care that healthcare staff are already providing to keep people fit and healthy for longer, and get everyone benefiting from the physical, mental and social benefits of being more active. We are here to help everyone working in health and social care, including both paid and voluntary roles, from GPs, nurses, and allied health professionals, to social care workers and befrienders.
