MOTH Project 3: Service evaluation of exercise referral schemes

Team members: Dr Paul Clarkson, Prof Maria Stokes, Dr Dorit Kunkel, Dr David Culliford, Mr Paul Muckelt, Dr James Faulkner

Start: October 2019 Ends: July 2021

Project Partners: University of Winchester

Lay summary: Exercise referral schemes aim to support people who have a LTC or are at risk of developing a condition, to be more active through planned group-based activities. Although evidence suggests that these schemes can be effective, further evidence is needed. The MOTH programme team established a protocol for evaluating these schemes before the Covid-19 pandemic closed these groups. The project is currently on hold, pending the re-opening of schemes or their update to be delivered virtually.
