New service now launched!
We are excited to announce the launch of 'Memory Connections', our new Dementia Maintenance Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (MCST) Service supporting older people living with mild to moderate dementia.
Many of our community-based exercise classes have restarted! We are looking forward to welcoming you back.
Promoting physical activity for mental and physical health and wellbeing, our Ageing Well service usually runs more than 150 exercise classes each week. Some of our community classes have restarted, and we also continue to offer some online sessions for those who wish to stay fit at home.
Our free Active Befriending ’Walk and Talk’ service matches clients with volunteers to go for a short walk and chat from the client's home over 8 weeks. It aims to support older people who would like to benefit from fresh air and being more active but don’t feel very confident and would prefer some company.
Do you have an enthusiasm for exercise and enjoy working within the fitness field? As Co-ordinator, you will help support and develop our Ageing Well activities across North Somerset, working closely with the service’s Deputy Manager and Co-ordinator for Somerset.
Are you organised, enjoy a varied role in administration and always have a ‘to-do-list’ to hand? Operational support is at the core of our dynamic organisation and working within the Support Service function the post-holder will play a key role in administering, monitoring and reporting on a range of elements that include Personnel, Governance, Quality and Health & Safety.

Some nasty people are taking advantage of people's anxiety during this time to try to scam them. We've had some information about various scams going round.
