Upbeat Adults (Calderdale Council)

Tel: 01422 284411



Upbeat is a free 10 week course in exercise and weight loss. The scheme is aimed at people who have coronary heart disease, diabetes, people `at risk' of cardiovascular disease or overweight with a BMI (Body Mass Index) over 30. It gives them the opportunity to try regular physical activity to help improve their health and wellbeing.

If you are interested in taking part in the Upbeat scheme you will need to contact your GP or practice nurse to be referred.

Once we have received your referral form, we will send you a letter and course timetable. If you are eligible we will write to you and invite you to book onto a 10 week course.
