Get Going Together is a health and wellbeing programme helping older people take part in physical activity.

Exercise brings physical and mental benefits and gives you the opportunity to socialise with others. So we want to encourage older people to lead a more active life.

Get Going Together

Activities on offer as part of Get Going Together range from one-to-one support in the home to group classes. These could include chair-based exercises, zumba and Nordic walking. Participants are offered individual support to find which activity best suits them.

Taking part

The programme is taking place in the five areas listed below.

If you want to get involved, or find out more about what's happening in your area, please contact your local Age UK directly:
