In six years the programme has helped to support over 2,000 people in the local area. In late 2021, over 900 consultations had taken place with 96 per cent of people classed as active after three months. This resulted in people’s life satisfaction ratings increasing by 125 per cent after taking part.
“The Active Watford and Three Rivers project has helped improve the quality of life for the town’s residents, through embedding physical activity into everyday lives,” said Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor.
“This tailored programme gives the guidance and support to help individuals overcome any barriers they face, by helping them find the motivation to be more active, and suiting it to the needs within their lifestyles.”
“Active Watford and Three Rivers is an important part of our service to support our residents to become more active,” added a spokesperson for Three Rivers District Council.
“The tailored guidance and support they receive is proven to help them on their journey to being more active and leading happier, healthier lives.”
