Physical Activity

The Right Track Programme – Possability People

Is a local organisation working in partnership with healthcare professionals to help you reduce aches and pains and improve your general wellbeing. Being active, getting out and about, meeting friends, doing activities, joining groups, can help to reduce pain and improve general wellbeing. Living with pain can make it difficult to get started. Right Track can support people with that challenge. Right track links adults who experience these conditions, and their carers, with the vast range of support in the community and voluntary sector.

If you would like to know more about Right Track, please contact the Right Track team on donna@possabilitypeople.org.uk or 01273 208934.
