What we offer


The scheme encourages individuals who are currently inactive to participating in sport as part of a preventative or rehabilitation programme. The scheme works in partnership with health professionals in Swansea including local GPs, practice nurses, dieticians, physiotherapists, diabetic nurses, psychologists and occupational therapists.


Are you over 60 and want to get active? This is for you! We are here to help motivate you and support you in your active journey.


ParkLives offers fun activities in parks, encouraging people to make new friends and enjoy the green spaces in their local community.

From balance bikes and pop up sessions to health walks in the community, as well as tai chi, Nordic walking and low impact fitness, there’s a variety of ParkLives sessions, to suit everyone. The timetabled activities are usually one hour long and led by supportive, friendly, trained session leaders, and volunteers from the local communities.
