We can support you and the befrienders you work with to add an Active Chat into their current phone calls. The aim of the call is to take individuals through a suggested conversation around being active while at home using the resources provided.

Examples of exercise at home include seated exercises that they can do without the need for any specialist equipment and to ensure it is within their comfort zone.

We provide free, informal training which can be held at a venue of your choice or workplace. The aim of the training is:

  • To provide your volunteers and workforce with the confidence to carry out an Active Chat. The Active Chat will encourage people who are spending the majority of time are home, to keep active and ultimately, increase mobility and prevent falls.
  • Provide the Active at Home booklet so they have the resource to work from to ensure they are only relaying information they are comfortable with.
  • To go through a suggestion conversation and different exercises of how to introduce activity into a phone call.

As well as the initial training, we can provide ongoing support to befrienders with regards to Active Chats.
