ActivHubs

A project working with older individuals and communities providing health and wellbeing services to keep people active, healthy and connected.

Step by Step

We run exercise programmes designed to help keep you mobile, active and independent. Specialised exercises can help make it easier to get out of a chair, stay steady on your feet, reduce your risk of falling, and increase your ability to carry out day-to-day tasks.

Specialist Hubs

Get out and make new friends, talk about the old days, improve your confidence, and stay independent – all of our hubs make socialising a top priority, as it’s just as important as keeping fit!

Lunch Clubs

Enjoy a healthy homemade hot 2 course meal in a fun and social environment. Get out and make new friends, talk about the old days, improve your confidence, and stay independent.

Current Activity Sessions

ActivSteps


A fun way to keep mobile and active by jiggling and jiving along to popular songs from today and from the golden years. Enjoy the activity sitting or standing, and follow along to the instructors moves.

Better Balance


An exercise programme designed to help keep you mobile, active and independent. Specialised exercises can help make it easier to get out of a chair, stay steady on your feet, as well as increase your ability to carry out day-to-day tasks.
