Ever Active

Ever Active is a programme that supports older adults who are seeking to improve their health and fitness and reduce feelings of loneliness and social isolation.

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.

All Ever Active sessions are low to moderate intensity and everyone is encouraged to take sessions at their own pace. A typical session also features opportunities for attendees to socialise with new friends. Sessions are delivered in a friendly and supportive group environment, led by qualified individuals and structures to help improve physical activity levels, mental and social health.

"My husband uses a wheelchair and it doesn't make any difference - he's just one of the gang and can participate on the same level as everyone else. John has taught him the basics and every week is a good laugh. It's a great opportunity to make new friends and be active in a sport that is accessible to everyone whatever their ability or disability. We try to make it every week but if we miss the odd one due to family commitments it doesn't matter" Pat, from Newbury. 

 If you are unable to leave home, we have a home exercise kit bag available. Please contact Nick Rance on nick.rance@getberkshireactive.org or call 01628 472851 if you would like a kit.
