2. The Healthwise Physical Activity Referral Scheme

Read more

The Healthwise physical activity referral scheme (PARS) is for Croydon residents (or those registered with a Croydon GP) who are physically inactive and have an existing medical health condition which could be improved through increasing physical activity (for details of eligible health conditions please click here.)  

Eligible Croydon residents will receive 12 weeks of physical activity support at regular training sessions. This is followed by, up to, three years of access to discounted monthly membership, to encourage you to continue to stay active independently.

If you think you might be eligible to participate in the Healthwise Physical Activity Referral Scheme, please speak to your GP so they can make a referral for you.
