We’re absolutely delighted to announce we’ve received funding to expand our FitLine initiative as part of the Keep Well campaign with thanks to Healthy Ireland, Sport Ireland and the Government of Ireland.
FitLine is a volunteer-led telephone-based motivation line which encourages callers to get more active. It’s a great way to help people who want to feel a bit healthier but just don’t have the time or information on where and how to take that first step.
Callers to FitLine can find out about clubs, groups, and facilities in their area. They will also be able to gets lots of ideas about how they can do simple physical activities as part of their day-to-day routine to suit their lifestyle.
