Health and Exercise Referral Programmes

Here at Live Borders we’re on a mission to make a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of our communities. We want to be the leader in providing effective health and physical activity programmes that encourage us all to lead active and healthy lives.

We work with partner organisations such as NHS Borders and Scottish Borders Council to deliver targeted intervention programmes. These programmes aim to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals and ultimately reduce demand on public services. Living in an area of deprivation brings many challenges among communities, and we use sport and physical activity as a tool to address these issues and encourage healthy lifestyles. Our activities can be accessed at various facilities throughout the Borders region, including community halls and schools.
