  • WORKSHOP
    Increasing Uptake and Provision of Community Based Strength & Balance Exercise Programmes

    Thursday 27th September 10:00 – 16:30 at the Creative Innovation Centre, Taunton.

    The Centre for Ageing Better has recently commissioned the Healthy Ageing Research Group (University of Manchester) and Consultants from Later Life Training to work with local areas to increase provision and uptake of strength and balance training programmes. 

    Somerset were successfully selected as one of 3 local areas to be included in the project at this level. 

    The aim of this workshop is to support local areas and take a whole-system approach to understanding the barriers and enablers to implementing evidence-based practice, improving referral pathways to increase access to, and uptake of, strength and balance programmes. All learning will be shared nationally as part of the project outputs.

    Stakeholders, representatives and residents of Somerset are welcome.

    The event is FREE OF CHARGE.  Please follow the link for more information and to Register for the Workshop.

  • Afternoon Social Tea Dance
    to raise funds for Age UK Somerset

    Thursday 4th October, 2pm-5pm at the Winter Gardens, Weston Super Mare

    Join us for an afternoon of dancing in this beautiful venue.

    There will be an assortment of popular Ballroom, Latin and Sequence Dance favourites and Mark Helmore (Weston's most popular 'music man') has volunteered to play his lovely music for this event.

    The date of the event coincides with National Older Persons Day and all funds raised will go towards furthering the many local activities of Age UK Somerset across Somerset and North Somerset, in promoting health and wellbeing, offering advice and information, and providing other services, such as befriending, to support people in their own homes.
