- Training for Organisations
Our training and support enables staff and volunteers to deliver high quality physical activity sessions and improve the wellbeing of participants. We help organisations who want to make an impact to the wellbeing of adults in their care, and are trying to deliver high standards under tough commercial pressures. We support and nurture our learners throughout the training process with the skills and knowledge to make a difference to participants wellbeing and become accredited ActivCare Coaches.
- Training for Carers
When caring for someone it is equally important that you take care of your own health and wellbeing, as well as the person in your care. Regular participation in exercise has a multitude of benefits from reducing stress and anxiety to improving quality of sleep: ActivCare Coaching enables carers to begin participating in simple yet effective exercises at home with the person in their care.
