Join in our range of activites in Stoke on Trent to help prevent falls by improving your strength and balance.

  • Our Ageing Well exercise activities have restarted following Government guidelines around COVID-19 and keeping everyone safe.

What activities do Ageing Well run in Stoke on Trent?

Gentle Exercise
Get active, make new friends and improve your balance, co-ordination and confidence! Sessions last 1-2 hours including time for refreshments and to catch up and chat. There is a £3 charge for these classes to support the costs.

Walking Groups
Meet new people while maintaining and improving your mobility. Join our walks in beautiful parks, canal paths and open spaces across the North Staffordshire area - these can be one, three and five mile walks. Weather-appropriate clothing & footwear are essential.

Practical health & safety talks
Improve your knowledge on healthy eating, preventing falls, reducing blood pressure, being safe in your own home and while out and about.

Who are these activities for?

Anyone aged 50 and over in the Stoke on Trent area.

What are the benefits of Ageing Well?

Our activities are organised by our Ageing Well team working closely with professionals in the health service and with Senior Health Mentors. This is a unique approach which recognises that older people themselves are an important health resource for each other, and for their community.

Older people can benefit from:

  • Increased energy levels
  • Promoting good mental health and keeping your mind active
  • Helping with weight control
  • Improved sleep
  • Reducing the risks of falling, heart disease, strokes, raised cholesterol, stress, arthritis and osteoporosis
  • Gaining confidence and self-esteem
  • Meeting new people and making new friends
