About the service

We promote both physical and mental health and wellbeing and support older people to remain independent for longer by helping them to stay fit and active in later life.

Making ageing a positive experience

Our Fitness and Friendship team work to promote the health and well-being of those in our community by:

  • Offering support and advice on the value of exercise and activity to those making general enquiries
  • Developing tools and resources to help keep you active and independent in your own home
  • Providing free information guides from Age UK on elements of healthy ageing.  You can download these below. 

Our Fitness & Freindship clubs

Our popular Fitness & Friendship Clubs will all be re-opened by the end of October 2021.  

The Clubs provide a great opportunity for older adults to socialise and stay active.  Each meeting includes gentle exercise to help maintain strength, balance and flexibility.

There’s also lots of time to enjoy chatting over refreshments.
