Intergenerational falls prevention

Falls awareness education resource pack

Younger people can play a vital role in helping older people in their lives to reduce the risk of falls. This education resource pack is designed to help children think about falling over, the impact that this could have on people, how they can support friends, relatives and loved ones to reduce their risk of falling over and think about how they can age healthily and prevent falling over in their own future.

This session which runs up to one-hour begins with a classroom-based discussion then an interactive falls ‘incident scene’ exploration exercise, the second part of the session is preferably in a different room or school hall. There are then extra options for additional activities or further learning including an online 360̊ falls ‘incident scene’ which children can investigate themselves.

The pack is targeted towards pupils aged 7-11, but it can be easily adapted for lower and upper age ranges.

This resource for school’s was developed by the Falls Prevention Taskforce for Wales in conjunction with Age Cymru, Care and Repair Cymru, Age Connects Wales, Swansea Bay Health Board and Cwm Taf Morgannwg Health Board.
