Health and wellbeing

Better influence.
Better health.
A better quality of life

At the heart of our work is the understanding that physical activity can significantly improve health and wellbeing. Not only does daily movement enhance the quality of life for the people of Lincolnshire, but it also reduces the impact of ill health and inactivity on the county’s healthcare system and public services.

Active Lincolnshire supports a whole system change approach to how we think, plan and embed options to be active across the health and wellbeing sector.

Here are some of the ways we support the health of people in Lincolnshire:

  • Embedding physical activity

    Embedding physical activity in the healthcare system

    We’re working with Lincolnshire CCG and Active Dorset to run a pilot programme to embed physical activity across the healthcare system.

    The aim of the programme is to develop better links with the healthcare sector, understanding more about how healthcare professionals can provide relevant information to patients and how they can influence and encourage people to incorporate activity into their daily lives.

  • Social prescribing

    Social Prescribing

    The concept of social prescribing is that GPs and other healthcare professionals refer patients to community and voluntary services, either in addition to or instead of traditional medication. The aim is to address patients’ needs in a holistic, personalised way.

    Active Lincolnshire works in partnership with the social prescribing network across the county to:

    • Support social prescribing link workers and GPs to understand the importance of being active and the ways it can improve mental health
    • Provide access to information about the physical activity opportunities in Lincolnshire
    • Support the sport, leisure and activity sector to develop opportunities that meet the needs of clients coming through referral schemes
  • Think Active

    Think Active

    As part of the Let’s Move Lincolnshire initiative, we coordinate Think Active – a group of stakeholders that come together to promote the positive links between mental health and physical activity. Through networking, understanding and influencing, Think Active aims to support system change and create connections with the stakeholders working in these sectors.

    In 2021, Active Lincolnshire received a grant from LPFT to develop Think Active groups, providing activity sessions and giving participants the opportunity to talk to each other about mental health.

  • Pre and post-natal

    Pre and post-natal

    Working with Better Births, One You Lincolnshire and Public Health, Active Lincolnshire leads Lincolnshire’s pre and post-natal programme, ensuring new and expectant parents have access to information and advice from healthcare professionals about leading an active lifestyle. The programme also supports parents to understand the importance of their children being active from an early age.
