"Since attending the classes I've noticed my stiff joints have improved, I have more energy and don't want to sit down so much." Anna - Sholing
Have you had a fall recently or noticed that:
- Your mobility has slowed down?
- You have lost some strength?
- You find everyday activity more difficult?
- You have increased stiffness in your joints and loss of balance?
- You feel more tired?
All these symptoms are normal but can create an increased risk of falls.
The Falls Revolution Project might be just the thing for you if you're looking to further reduce the risk of falling.
What is the Falls Revolution Project?
Run by Level 4 Postural Stability Instructors, the project is designed to change attitutes and behaviour towards falling by delivering a structured 12-week low cost exercise class.
What will you receive?
- Support beyond the 12 week programme to continue to improve your mobility
- Support to address other issues that have the potential to impact on your quality of life; this could incude a financial wellbeing check or referral to our visiting service
- An invitation to take part in the Sloppy Slipper Exchange, an opportunity for you to replace your worn out or poorly fitted slippers that may increase your chances of a fall
A suggested contribution of £3.50 towards the cost of running these classes is requested, payable each week, or if preferred, £42 as a single contribution for the whole 12 week programme.
If you unable to access public transport or attend the classes without support, we can organised assisted transport at an additional cost. These will be discussed when booking.
