Physical Activity Referral - Trafford Leisure

Physical Activity Referral

Here at Trafford Leisure, we work with a range of local partners including local GP practices, physiotherapists and other health and social care partners to identify individuals who would benefit from being more physically active.

The Trafford Leisure’s Physical Activity Referral makes physical activity easily accessible and provides all relevant referrals with:


8 weeks subscription to physical activity for a nominal fee of £20
