60+ Active Communities (Including people living with dementia)
Exercise is one way to bring people together and given that 42% of people aged 55 and over are inactive compared to 29% of the population as a whole, we have the opportunity to help improve participants physical and mental health and well being as part of our sessions.
We have players with dementia, limited mobility and in wheelchairs. Participants will benefit from positive outcomes like feeling less isolated and being sociable, being active, improving skills, feeling happier which will improve health and wellbeing where participants, carers and family benefit beyond sessions. Age UK recommend participation in group activities to improve health and wellbeing.
