In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.


Paths For All

Our 3-hour workshops are led by our Paths for All trainers who are also qualified Later Life trainers. The workshop includes information about why it is essential for older adults to stay physically active, and you will be able to try out the 14 strength and balance exercises and learn how to demonstrate them in a group setting. Each delegate will receive a set of cue cards and 5 leaflets.
