Sign up now for our new, free service to help you get active.
Active Steps is a free service which provides you with support over 12 months to become and stay active. Active Steps is funded by Sport England and the National Lottery.
I saw about Active Steps online and decided to give the programme a go. After a few weeks I found I was beginning to improve in many ways. The programme made me think of goals and I’ve found myself working towards achieving those goals every day. It’s the encouragement I receive from the team at Active Steps that makes this possible.Eamon
Active Steps gave me my breath back
After being diagnosed with a lung condition, Eamon was constantly breathless and started to give up. Finding the Active Steps programme gave him a new lease of life.
How we'll support you
We’ll support you by giving you:
- regular calls to discuss how you can become more active and how we can help you together
- an information pack including an activity diary, so you can track your activities and your progress
- regular newsletters with useful tips and inspirational stories of other people with lung conditions who have benefitted from being active
- information about ways to become active in your local area
- access to other members of our helpline team to support your wider needs, such as access to financial benefits
Who can use the service?
We offer this service to anybody with a lung condition who isn’t currently active and would like support to become active. Currently, due to funding restrictions, Active Steps is only available to people living in England. We hope to bring the service to other places in the UK in the future.
Please note that the support we offer is not intended to replace advice from a GP, consultant, nurse or other health care professional.
How do you sign up?
If you’ve been diagnosed with a lung condition and are not currently active you can refer yourself directly to the service. The Active Steps team will give you a call to explain the service in more detail and check that it’s appropriate for you.
