The Be Inspired Foundation was founded to provide scholarships for active rehabilitation to disadvantaged Western Australian youth living with chronic disease, cancer, disabilities or major trauma, where beneficiaries receive (exercise, dietary or counselling) support for 12 months. This case study examines the effects of this novel model of care on a young male living with morbid obesity. Over the 12-month intervention, improved physical and functional capacity saw clinically meaningful changes occur as a result of active rehabilitation, which progressed to long-term lifestyle changes. The Be Inspired Foundation model of care is able to support individuals with complex conditions who lack access to health services.
