Free gym memberships available to those on low incomes in West Norfolk
Active Norfolk and the Norfolk Assistance Scheme (NAS) have partnered up to run a short pilot scheme in West Norfolk, designed to help those living on low incomes.
Through this scheme, we’ll be offering a limited number of free three-month gym memberships at any Alive gym in West Norfolk to those who are found eligible through the NAS website.
Eligible participants will also be able to apply for £50 to spend on gym clothing.
Who is eligible for the pilot scheme?
If you’re unsure whether you’re eligible, visit the link at the bottom of this page for more information.
Why have low income individuals been selected?
Through this scheme, we hope to make physical activity more accessible to those on lower incomes who might not otherwise benefit from it. Physical activity shouldn’t be a luxury, and everyone should be able to access it. In turn, being more physically active can make vital contributions towards improving mental health and wellbeing.
If found eligible after applying through the Norfolk Assistance Scheme, the free membership will cover gym, swimming and classes, and it can be used at Alive Lynnsport, Alive St James, Alive Downham or Alive Oasis (Hunstanton). For more information on Alive West Norfolk facilities and memberships, please visit www.alivewestnorfolk.co.uk or contact them directly on 01553 818001.
Spread the word!
