Physical activity promotes a number of positive health outcomes; improved physical and mental health, quality of life, social connectedness and disease prevention.
We recognise that becoming more active can be a challenge especially when living with a long-term health condition, so in order to support health-enhancing physical activity, we have developed a number of accessible and affordable programmes that provide a supportive environment in which a person can become more active.
We’re partnering with Fife Council to provide warm spaces to help you get active and stay social during the cold winter months.
We know many people are struggling with rising energy bills this winter, and that’s why we are holding these free sessions to give you extra support during the cold months.
Enjoy a hot drink and biscuit, and meet other participants while enjoying optional, informal, social activities like table tennis, indoor curling, board games and short exercise activities.

"I thoroughly enjoy the 49ers clubs the Trust have set up, they're an excellent way to play with like-minded players. Although the majority are “mature” we are fairly competitive and love the game – but also enjoy the social side of meeting up on a regular basis. If you would like to get back to playing again why don’t you join us?" - Marlene
