What is ActivLives? 

ActivLives is a local independent charity working in Ipswich and across Suffolk to keep people active, connected and involved with their local community through accessible sports and exercise, learning new skills and volunteering opportunities.


Set up to provide a fun and social way for people to keep fit and healthy, improve strength, balance and co-ordination, reduce stress and make new friends in the process!


ActivLives and Ipswich Borough Council, are motivating and inspiring people 45 years and over to increase their physical activity, eat more healthily and become more involved with the community.


ActivGardens are all about growing! Growing plants. Growing fresh healthy food. Growing yourself… your fitness, your health, your skills, your friends, your community. Get active with ActivGardens!


ActivSuffolk provides local Sport and Falls Prevention sessions out in the rural areas of Suffolk, keeping people aged 60 years and over active, connected, happy, independent and reducing social isolation.


The Keep On Rockin’ members have achieved a sustainable singing group through weekly member support, fundraising and regular performances.

We’ve put together this video to show you what we do, and how we can help you.

Whether it’s improving your balance at one of our hubs, learning about horticulture at one of our gardens, finding your voice in our Keep On Rockin’ singing group, or simply meeting new friends at one of our lunch clubs.

We’re not just a fitness organisation – we’re a community – and we’re here, for you.
