What is Ever Active?
Being physically active has been proven to increase individuals' mental health and social life, as well as reducing the risk of many physical health issues. Ever Active is a programme that supports older & disabled adults who are seeking to improve their health and fitness and reduce feelings of loneliness and social isolation.
How We Do It
Wellbeing Sessions - take part virtually
Due to current restrictions we are delivering all sessions virtually. All of these activities are led by a qualified instructor, pitched at a gentle intensity and are perfect for those who might not have been active for a while, maybe you have been shielding and/or are looking to rebuild your confidence about being active again.
Each session also has some time allocated to socialise and connect with others taking part.
Please consider the following safety and top tips before taking part;
- Ensure you use an area where you have enough space to take part. All of the sessions can be completed whilst seated but you will still need to be able to move your arms and legs.
- Ensure you use a sturdy chair.
- Keep water and a mobile phone or telephone close by.
- Consult with your GP or healthcare professional beforehand if you have any health related concerns about taking part.
