Green Prescription/Active Families

Our team are offering phone consultations for Green Prescription/Active Families clients in Alert Level 4. We understand this can be a challenging time for clients, but our advisors remain here to support you. We encourage you to attend your scheduled consultation over the phone, and for current clients to join in on the chat on our private Facebook groups for further support.

Keep on Your Feet

Community strength and balance classes cannot meet in-person under COVID-19 Alert Level 3/4. However, some classes are now being delivered online. Please contact your class instructor to find out if this is a service they are currently offering.

Alternatively, our team have prepared a number of strength and balance exercises that can be safely completed at home.

Alert level guidelines for play, active recreation and sport

Sport New Zealand has guidelines about what activities can be undertaken at different alert levels.

Alert level information for each region, and health advice, can be found on the COVID-19 government website.


Any scheduled workshops will either be cancelled or moved to online. The workshop facilitator will be in touch to confirm.

Community sport and recreation organisations can access great tips and resources under our COVID-19 Help section.

Remaining physically active while in lockdown can really help your physical and mental wellbeing. That’s why we’ve put together loads of resources about activities you can do at home, in your neighbourhood or at school if school activities are limited.

We’ve developed resources for every age, from young children to adults and older persons. Find out more at
