Age UK Salford in partnership with Foundation 92 has launched a new walking football programme for older people in Albert Park, Broughton and in Swinton.

This local scheme is part of a wider Age UK walking football programme supported by both The Football Association and Sport England to help older people in Salford to keep active and to improve physical and mental wellbeing through playing the game.

Watch the Age UK Video to find out more.

Age UK Salford’s walking football sessions will start on Tuesday 22nd January and will be held weekly at Albert Park in Broughton and in Swinton. The sessions are open to anyone over the age of 50 regardless of ability or previous experience. We will also run a session for those living with dementia.

All groups and sessions will be COVID-secure and delivered in accordance with Government guidelines.

The groups will be facilitated by Foundation 92, who will provide professional and experienced coaches to support the groups.
