Our aim is to support and encourage you to increase your levels of physical activity by offering 3 levels of support. Starting from self-care to signposting, to psychologically informed behaviour change sessions, dependent on the individual’s needs.

Our service is designed for ‘inactive adults’ doing less than 30 minutes of moderate activity per week and are living with a long-term health condition. From January 2020, the eligible long-term conditions have widened to include any long-term health condition or disability therefore making this service accessible to all those who require support.

The team at OneLife Suffolk understand that being physically active can be very challenging, particularly if you are faced with a long-term condition.  We are here to provide the tools and information that will enable you to gradually increase your activity levels in a safe and effective way.

We offer three levels of support based on currently physical abilities. Our team are here to support you with 12 month’s of support and depending on which level you are eligible for there are different programmes to suit your needs.

OneLife Suffolk are looking to build a new volunteer network of Activators to offer opportunities so people who have a passion for sport, activity, and movement can share it with those who need it the most.  As a One Life Suffolk ‘Get Help to Get Active’ Volunteer Activator you will help support individuals who have undergone a triage process and have been identified suitable for community based activity as part of our “Get Help to Get Active” programme. Our Activators will help participants start on their journey to an active life by leading a free 1 hour weekly session in the sport or activity you love over 6 weeks.

To learn more about becoming a volunteer “Activator” please see the full description here.

If you have any urgent questions, please see our FAQ’S or call our client services team on 01473 718193

We’ve added the new Active at Home Booklet from Public Health England. It provides practical guidance to older adults on staying active during the Coronavirus outbreak.

“If physical activity were a drug, we would refer to it as a miracle cure, due to the great many illnesses it can prevent and help treat.”
