The aim of the Get Active Pass (previously named Leisure Cheques) is to increase once a week participation in sport/exercise. Our target group are those who take part in less than 30 minutes per week on a regular basis.
Please note the scheme is available by referral only, key information about the scheme can be viewed using the two links below:
Once you have signed up as a key worker you can refer participants by completing and returning the application form or you can refer via our online form.
A key worker can be anybody in a professional capacity that is supporting an individual to improve that person’s health and wellbeing.
How the scheme works
Organisations supporting applicants will refer individuals eligible for ten free and ten half price entry and negotiate what applicants want to do, when they want to do it and what support they need to get them more active.
Free and discounted access is available through the Get Active Pass:
- The Get Active Pass offers limited free and half price access to casual gym, swim, court hire at North Somerset leisure centres (Hutton Moor, Scotch Horn, Backwell, Parish Wharf, Strode and Churchill).
To qualify for the Get Active Pass applicants must be:
- Living in North Somerset
- A new sport / exercise participant (applicants do not currently take part in sport / exercise for at least 30 minutes once per week) and would benefit from taking part in exercise due to their current physical or mental health.
- Referred by a key worker who is already supporting them as part of a local service
- New to the scheme – so should not have previously been referred for a Get Active Pass or Leisure Cheques
I support service users, can I refer people?
If you support service users as part of your job or volunteering position you are eligible to refer applicants to the scheme.
First you must sign up as a key worker, just download our Information pack and key worker agreement form and return the agreement form at the end of the pack.
Is there any information about the scheme that I can give to service users?
Our survey must also be completed to activate half price visits on the Get Active Pass, this will be done automatically once users have completed the survey, so no need to contact us. The survey can be completed online
