Community Health Referral

Boroondara Leisure and Aquatic Facilities

Community Referral Pathway

In the world of health and fitness, the conversation often seems to focus on the “me” rather than the “we”, the buffed body rather than the happy heart.

The YMCA have a different view. We believe being healthy is about more than just personal fitness. True health comes from building strong bodies and strong feelings of connection within our community.

It’s about being healthy together.

We provide the perfect environment for participants transitioning from clinical based exercise and rehabilitation programs to ongoing self-exercise management. The combination qualified professionals and facilities will make you or your client’s path to a more active lifestyle an easy one.

If you are currently being supported by a health professional (Physio, Osteo or GP) and are ready to move to a self-managed exercise program please complete the contact form below and one of our friendly staff will contact you to get started.

If you would prefer to attend the centre with the support of your health professional there is a short centre induction to complete upon the first visit and a simple sign in process for all follow up visits. For ease of access please contact the centre prior to your first visit to ensure a staff member is available to assist with the initial induction.
