Move More Edinburgh will offer all four of the Move More activities; gentle movement, walking and circuit classes with gardening following in year two.  Many of the classes will take place in Edinburgh Leisure venues as well as local community spaces to help bridge the gap back into mainstream physical activity. Following participation in one or more of the physical activity sessions participants will be signposted onto Edinburgh Leisure and community activities to continue with their physical activity.
Edinburgh Leisure is the largest leisure provider in Edinburgh with over 30 venues and more than 4.8 million customer visits per year.  As a not for profit organisation their goal is to make a positive difference across the city, helping everyone to get active, stay active and achieve more. The Move More project sits within Edinburgh Leisure’s health team along with 7 other projects, many funded by external partners.  From weight management to falls prevention, each of the projects aims to help those who face health inequalities the chance to experience the benefits of physical activity for themselves.  Edinburgh Leisure have a strong presence in local communities across the city and with funding and expertise from Macmillan Cancer Support the Move More Edinburgh project will reach out to people in Edinburgh affected by cancer, enabling them to get active.
