What is Active 4-16?

The programme is a ‘Sport and Physical Activity on Referral Initiative’ available to young people. The aim is to increase long term participation in sport and physical activity by raising awareness of the benefits of sport, physical activity and healthy lifestyles to young people and their families.

What do we want to achieve from Active 4-16?

We would like young people to receive a safe and effective introduction to sport and physical activity and be encouraged to continue to take part beyond the referral period, empowering clients to take control of their health and address lifestyle issues.
