New stretch target

Increase participants in the project

The organisation will use funding to run every week physical activity, for older members of our community for the period of 12 months. 

This will enable beneficiaries to keep their minds and bodies active, with the aims of reducing isolation and loneliness. 

 Drawing on our global experience and expertise of using the power of sport to unite people from different backgrounds through carefully designed interventions, we aim to reduce loneliness in old age groups; promote regular collaboration between them; reduce ageism; and increase physical activity by older people.

 This project it is new and it is going to benefits older people who started the idea of the project were asked for their views at a local event and this included older people attending consultation activities across a one-month period. In total 40 older took part. Six ‘at isolation’ older people served on the.
