Things To Do

We have a variety of programmes available that offer flexibility in how you get involved depending on your motivations.

Walking

Short inclusive walks at home or outside, group Health Walks, walking sports, fun walking challenges, Somerset Photo competition, social walks recommended by you, and Active Befriending Walk and Talk. Click here to find out more details


Falls Prevention

As you get older, you may find that muscle strength is reduced and you are less steady on your feet. Some movements, such as leaning sideways or turning quickly, can cause a loss of balance. This can begin earlier than you may expect, from your early fifties onwards. To prevent a loss of balance and strength over time, strength-building exercises are recommended.

Move More with Bands

Two resources developed to support people with resistance exercises to boost strength and wellbeing. The seated version is beneficial for new starters or anyone feeling more comfortable moving within the chair and the standing version acts as a great progression. Both programmes encourage movements targeting all areas of the body with the standing resource building in balance and stability exercises which are important for protecting future health and preventing falls.
