GET SET, GET ACTIVE – IMPROVING ACTIVITY, REDUCING ISOLATION AND PROMOTING SOCIAL INCLUSION FOR OLDER PEOPLE

Our low impact Community Golf programme which consists of putting and chipping skills are designed to remove all barriers and be fully inclusive.  Our objectives are to promote physical activity and lead to improving people’s sense of physical and mental wellbeing.

Through generous funding from the Wimbledon Foundation, Age UK Merton used their Get Set, Get Active Fund grant to grow their healthy living activities for older people in Merton.

We had a fantastic 10 weeks playing golf with everyone at Age UK Merton.
