The aim of the scheme is to increase long term participation in physical activity and sport by raising awareness of the benefits exercise and healthy lifestyles have to young people and their families.

The scheme targets to make exercise more accessible and affordable to individuals and is open to young people aged 8-16 years with 'low risk' medical, emotional or mental health difficulties. The scheme aims to provide the opportunity for any young person who falls into this category to participate in physical activity and sport if it is believed physical activity will have a positive impact in their life.

 

The scheme is open to young people aged 8-16 years with one or more of the following 'low risk' medical conditions and their 'low risk' emotional difficulties:

  • Diabetes (controlled)
  • Asthma
  • Obesity
  • Eating Disorders
  • Obsessional Compulsive Disorders
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Depression
  • Low Self Esteem
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Specific Conditions affecting motor skill development

Referral Partners work with the young person and their parent / guardian to complete a 'recommendation form' detailing medical history, personal details and a brief reason for the recommendation.

These details are then forwarded to the Activ8-2-16 Coordinator who will then arrange for the relevant action to be taken to ensure the young person is introduced to the Sports and Physical Activities on the Activ8-2-16 Timetable.
