A programme of help and support to get active is on offer from Epping Forest District Council to residents across the district.

Active Living is delivering day and evening sessions with 1-2-1 advice, group exercise and long term support in Loughton, Buckhurst Hill, Epping, Waltham Abbey and Ongar.

Positive results

Not only are participants feeling more energised and doing more activity but they have achieved lower blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol levels and say:

“Feeling younger and more alert”

“Learning about myself – not just my limits but my capabilities”

“Active Living helps to build structure into my day”

“I don’t feel on my own”

All the support you need

Getting active can be difficult, so the Active Living programme provides support every step of the way. Our professional and friendly staff work with participants to set a personal plan of action that will make it simple to find ways to fit physical activity into daily life. Free advice and support is on hand to help people stay on plan and realise their goals.

If you are interested in becoming more active and:
