 Can a Green Prescription help you lead a healthier lifestyle?

 

 

Green Prescription (GRx) is a programme to improve the health and wellbeing of adults through free physical activity and nutrition support.  Through education, removal of barriers, and development of personal skills GRx aims to enhance physical, mental and social well-being. 

Once referred by your doctor or nurse, our Healthy Lifestyles Team at Sport Wellington will contact you and get you underway with a suitable activity programme.  We’ll provide the support, advice and resources needed to help reduce barriers and get you started on a journey to a healthier lifestyle. 

GRx starts as phone support, but we will work with you to find the best solution and support for your circumstances

Green Prescription Plus (GRxPlus)

GRxPlus is a more intensive programme for adults with pre-diabetes, cardiovascular risk, or other chronic medical conditions who are ready to accept a higher level of support. GRxPlus involves free one-on-one consultations with our team and/or small group programmes  that involve activity sessions, nutrition education, cooking workshops and other wellbeing related topics - see the Healthy Lifestyle Programmes page for upcoming programmes.
