Get active with like minded people

Do you want to get more active? We can help.


When making the decision to start getting more active, you might feel like you’re the only one in the world who’s going on this journey. In fact, you’re not even the only one in Dorset trying to get more active, let alone the world! Don’t believe us? Join Our LiveWell Facebook group and start chatting to likeminded people straight away!


Why should you join Our LiveWell Facebook group? Well, for starters you get to share your story as you begin your journey to get active. Whether you ran your first kilometre or are looking for advice on how to begin getting active, you will have access to a community of loca people in the same situation as you. It’s good to talk, especially when you are trying to do something to better yourself. Be proud of what you are doing, let the community know what your goals are and how you are planning to achieve them. The community will support you on your journey.


Our LiveWell Facebook group is a great place to get tips for the best running spots, discover free outdoor gym areas or get advice on how to get active. Everyone is in the same boat and no one is passing judgment, it’s a community of people offering encouragement, advice and share their journey to healthy living.


One of the biggest obstacles for people wanting to get active is not having anyone to spur them on, work out with or motivate them to get started. The beauty of Our LiveWell Facebook Group is that it enables you to meet new friends who are keen to get active.


Joining our Facebook group couldn’t be easier. Simply sign in to Facebook, search for ‘Our LiveWell’ or click ‘join’. We’ll accept your join request and voila! You’re a part of the community. Joining Our LiveWell comes with a commitment to the LiveWell pledge:

  • To make healthy eating choices
  • To drink less alcohol
  • To increase my physical activity
  • [If you smoke] To start my journey to give cigs the boot

If you're ready to live by this pledge, join Our LiveWell.

Getting active is easier with friends. Join Our LiveWell Facebook group today and to get support from people in your area.

How does this work?

The tailored approach LiveWell Dorset uses to come up with solutions to the things that are stopping us achieving our goals, is based upon work done by University College London developing the COM-B model of behaviour change. In this model, all behaviour is influenced by understanding a person’s capability to change, their opportunity to change and their motivation to change. By understanding which of these is the biggest barrier to change, we can tailor support accordingly. This model of behaviour change is at the centre of the support we offer, online and in person.

Do you provide your consent to share your information with the LiveWell Dorset team – part of Public Health Dorset ?

When you register with LiveWell Dorset, we ask you some questions about you and your health (how much you smoke, how active you are, how much you drink and how much you weigh). We store that information and use it to shape our service offer to you – such as the advice we give or the extra services we connect you to. The only people who will see this information will be those involved in the delivery of the service and management of the data. If you would like to use extra services (such as slimming clubs and pharmacies) we have to share this information with them. For us to be able to put you in touch with these services, we must have your consent to share that information with the service (we’ll ask for that later, when if you sign up for extra services).

Before we can sign you up any further, we need to know:

  • You're happy for your personal information to be shared with LiveWell Dorset.
  • You understand what information may be shared and why, and that at times, our contact to you may be supported by technology partners, who have the same data protection standards and safeguards as we do
  • You acknowledge that you can withdraw your consent at any time by informing LiveWell Dorset.
  • You understand that if you do not give consent or withdraw consent then it could be difficult for us to connect you some of the services we offer.

If you require any more information to help you make your choice then please contact the LiveWell Dorset team on 0800 840 1628. All telephone conversations at LiveWell Dorset are recorded for quality and training purposes, and stored whilst you are registered as active within the service.
