Thriving Communities webinar: physical activity and social prescribing

'We Are Undefeatable' - overcoming barriers to physical activity and how social prescribing can be part of the solution.

When you think of physical activity you might picture running on a treadmill at the gym, going to an exercise class, or the dreaded goal of achieving 5 x 30 minutes of moderate exercise every week. In this webinar we will debunk the myths that surround how to get people to exercise more and look at what recent studies have shown are the barriers and effective motivations to increased physical activity.

With the Richmond Group of Charities and their 'We Are Undefeatable' campaign, we will show how social prescribing can help anyone, but particularly those with long term conditions, to integrate physical activity into their daily lives, increasing both mental and physical wellbeing in the process.

What will you learn/hear?

In this webinar we will show what the effective motivations are to increased physical activity and provide you with resources to use in your own lives or in the work you do with people through social prescribing. We will break down the myths that surround the motivations and barriers to exercise and show that the message at the heart of social prescribing – what matters to you – is key to increasing physical activity.

Who is it for?

Anyone who is interested in embedding physical activity in their life, or in the lives of people they work with and who are looking for practical resources to help.

You might be from a community or voluntary group, a charity with a focus on physical activity, the NHS, or a local authority.

Who will be speaking?

  • Tracey Lines, National Lead for Physical Activity, National Academy for Social Prescribing
  • Michelle Roberts, Health Programme Manager, The Richmond Group of Charities
