Move More Western Isles (NHS Western Isles)

The Move More Western Isles project offers support to help you to become more active and improve your health and wellbeing. It does this by offering a range of FREE physical activity opportunities.

Move More Western Isles is aimed at people aged over 16 years who are living with one or more long-term conditions (including cancer), and who would like to benefit from support to improve their health by increasing their physical activity.

We offer a variety of one-to-one and group exercise programmes uniquely tailored to you to improve your strength, balance and cardiovascular health. Activities on offer may include: easy aqua aerobics, gentle movement, group ‘Move More’ circuits, gardening, an introduction to fitness equipment and group walking.

Working with you, the Move More Activity Officer will create a personalised programme of activity suited to your individual needs and ability. The programme can last 12 weeks with ongoing support offered after your programme has ended.
