Isolation does not mean you're alone

At this difficult time it can be hard to stay motivated for exercise, but we're here to help.

As someone with a long-term neurological condition it's really important to keep active to maintain mobility and strength. Not only is it important for your physical health but exercise can help your well-being too.

As part of our Access to Exercise programme we have put in place a number of ways that you can continue to exercise and have support during this time of isolation.

  • Live online exercise sessions to do at home over Zoom
  • Telephone support
  • Exercise advice over the telephone
  • Online themed activity sessions to build friendship and support

We also have a list of exercise films that can be carried out at home in your own time and some videos from our gym instructor which give a workout for biceps, triceps and shoulders.

Our live Zoom class will be on a ????? at ????. Book a place on the next one here.

You may also find our page on general advice on isolating useful or our regular blogs on support and activities to do at home. Our regular follow-up calls and surveys to fulfil the research element of the programme will continue to take place.

We want to make this support as useful as it can be at this time so if you have ideas about other things that would help you manage the lockdown and staying active then please let us know at [email protected]
