Innovative new health website launches

Blaby News Green Envelope

An eagerly anticipated and innovative new website has been launched to help Blaby District residents get more active.

Active Blaby is a brand-new website featuring the most comprehensive directory of over 450 local activities and groups in the district. The directory gives residents all the key information about the classes and exercise groups listed, which can be filtered by day, activity type and location.

The exciting new feature to Active Blaby is a pioneering behavioural assessment to help give residents practical advice and support to overcome inactivity. All of these services can be accessed at www.activeblaby.org.uk.

Results from the assessment give people the opportunity see the support that will be most effective to get them active, with resources and services on the website.

Offering both low and high intensity advice the Active Blaby team offer many services within the district, including a Falls Prevention programme and Steady Steps.

Active Blaby also work in the community to help deliver activities for people with health conditions as well as inactive young people. Residents can be referred to the Active Blaby team or take advantage of the information on how to be active at home, in the community or with a group.

Councillor Sharon Coe, Portfolio Holder for Health, Wellbeing, Community Engagement and Business Support, said: “This is a fantastic new website and a welcome addition to the wellbeing of residents within the district.

“Our team have been working hard to get this new option available to everyone across the district. Whether you’re looking for a class or want to find out the best options to get active, this really is the website for you.

“We are looking forward to the coming months and enabling people to get active and helping improve the wellbeing of residents.”
