The National Exercise Referral Scheme (NERS) is a 16 week activity programme designed to each individual's needs to help those who have been identified by a Medical Practitioner, to participate in high quality, supervised physical activity to improve health and wellbeing.

Access to the scheme can be obtained through a visit to your Doctor's surgery, who will then refer you (if eligible) to a member of the Ceredigion County Council Health Intervention team who will then contact you.

A number of physical and psychological benefits have been reported through the scheme including muscular strength increase, helping to maintain independence, being able to carry out daily activities for longer as well as becoming more confident.
