Ageing Well

Ageing Well is a National programme promoting physical activity for mental and physical health and wellbeing.  

Our Ageing Well service is responsible for organising and running more than 150 exercise classes each week across Somerset and North Somerset.

We work with Somerset County Council to provide Stay Strong Stay Steady strength and balance classes and are one of only three organisations nationally who work with Manchester University on this evidence based programme.

“Adding years to life, adding life to years” is our aim.

Stay Strong Stay Steady

For those who sometimes feel a little unsteady on their feet we hold evidence-based strength and balance classes. They are held all over Somerset.
