Green Prescription (GRx) is a free health and wellbeing programme for adults 18 years and over. The programme is best suited to adults who would like support and motivation to get active and improve their lifestyle. The service is delivered through community-based programmes in Auckland and Counties Manukau. There are also a large number of online support options for participants.
This programme Green Prescription could be designed by Sports Auckland based on the needs/insights provided by the requesting community organisation in terms of the type of physical activity, nutrition support that would be best suited for the communities. After assessing the request Sports Auckland could provide one on one consultations. This is a programme that delivers free onsite physical activity/exercise sessions with regular motivational and nutrition support.
Sports Auckland would ideally need to be working with a group of 40+, with the community organisation that requests the support identifying generally communities or group members that they consider inactive and in need of support (rather than a community /organisation members that are already regularly exercising).
