The new partnership will see a major focus on helping get all Barnet residents more active and more healthy and we will be developing a wide range of new and innovative schemes to help achieve this
Mark Sesnan, managing director, GLL

A physical activity referral scheme is set to be introduced in the London Borough of Barnet to help increase levels of exercise among the local community.

The scheme is part of a deal between Barnet Council and operators Greenwich Leisure Limited (GLL), which have agreed to renew their partnership for a further 10 years.

The new contract, which begins on 1 January 2018, will also see the council and GLL implement a free resident’s card which provides discounts on activities, free swimming to children under eight, specialist health programmes that include weight management for children and adults, the creation of ‘health hubs’ to deliver health checks and advice for residents, and a carer's pass.

Additionally, a community programme will deliver activities in local settings such as care homes, women’s groups, religious organisations and schools.

“The new partnership will see a major focus on helping get all Barnet residents more active and more healthy and we will be developing a wide range of new and innovative schemes to help achieve this across the borough,” said Mark Sesnan, GLL managing director.

GLL started working with the council in 2003 and will continue to manage five leisure facilities, including two new developments at Barnet Copthall and Victoria Recreation Ground in New Barnet.

Councillor Sachin Rajput, chairman of the adults and safeguarding committee at Barnet Council, said that the authority’s vision “aims to create a more active and healthy borough”.

“We're committed to developing and diversifying leisure provision to enable opportunities for residents of all ages and ability," he added. "Our new contract will introduce a range of opportunities based within our leisure centres, parks and the local community.”
