Participants living with long-term health conditions required for UK Coaching Health Focus Groups

UK Coaching are asking for participants who have experience of living with a long-term health condition to take part in an online focus group. They are keen to provide support to coaches to increase their confidence and competence when working with those living with long-term health conditions, in order to support them in being more physically active.
