KICC Active Lothian is a joint funded project; a partnership between KICC and MS Therapy Centre Lothian. The Project is fully funded by the Alliance (Health & Social Care Alliance), under the Self-Management Impact Fund, provided by the Scottish Government.
In Scotland 2 million people live with a long term condition, which equates to around 40% of the population.
Many people living with long term conditions find it difficult to access appropriate mainstream exercise and fitness classes and as a result, are unable to remain healthy and manage their condition.
KICC Active Lothian is an on-going project. We are facilitating the establishment of accessible, self-management community based exercise programmes in Lothian.
This project is being established Lothian wide starting in East and Midlothian and moving into West Lothian and Edinburgh.
Our classes enable self-management by showing you how to exercise safely
and how you can continue at home as well.
We want to make adapted exercise classes available near you, in your local community.
We offer yoga, pilates, circuits, hydrotherapy and more.
Classes are gentle and specially designed for people with varying levels of mobility and experience.
Self-management forms an important part of our ethos.
We believe being able to manage your own condition with the help of trained professionals is key to well-being and living a quality life.
