What they aim to achieve

“Your body and mind for life.”

Re-Energise aims to enable people to lead more active, fulfilling and happier lives, by: 

  • enabling people to be more physically active

  • creating opportunities for people to develop stronger social networks

  • reducing levels of depression, anxiety and stress

What they do


  • outreach and recruitment

  • one-to-one support and confidence building

  • collective activity and socialisation

  • transferring into mainstream services


  • Focusing on long-term lifestyle changes rather than a short-term, quick-fix approach. 

  • Increased physical activity reduces the causes of mental and physical health problems. 

  • A holistic approach will reduce levels of long-term conditions, stress and depression, and reduce mortality rates. 

  • Reducing these effects will reduce demand for clinical services, including prescribing rates, primary care and hospital admissions. 

What difference does it make?

  • increased levels of physical activity

  • improved diet and nutrition

  • improved social activities

  • improved physical health

  • improved mental and emotional well-being
