Camden's exercise referral scheme

Later Life community exercise programme

The Camden Later Life physical activity programme  (over 55, but caters for people who need more support )  is now delivered directly by Better.  These classes are part of the Better Camden 55+ Club Activity programme and are classed as gentle. They continue to be delivered at a range of venues across Camden  and  cater for older adults with health conditions. You do not need a referral – just talk to the tutors who are used to working with a range of health conditions.

Payments can be made with  vouchers (£3/session), which you can buy at all of the Better leisure centre receptions in Camden. In order to buy the vouchers you need to take out a “Pay and Play “ membership which costs £5.40 for Camden residents.

Participants with pre-paid Better memberships do not need to purchase vouchers, as the classes are included within your membership.
