And to offer some or all of the following:

bullet

safe, simple yet effective evidence based exercise advice to older people that will help to prevent falls and injuries and help improve and maintain the health, strength, mobility and independence

bullet

fun and social interaction, e.g. 'Holiday in the Hall', day trips, tea dances

bullet

lifelong learning opportunities, e.g. through participation in the 'Dark Horse Project' and the 'Younger for Longer Award'

bullet

simple health checks, e.g. monitoring of blood pressure
