Senior Citizens Get Active at the Link Centre
Generation Gains first Senior Club Activities Session starting on Thursday 3rd May 2018 from 2pm - 3.15pm at the Link Centre, Swindon.
The session will cost £2.50 and will include the following activities:
Strength and balance exercises to help you feel more competent on your feet. In the sessions we use fun and inclusive activities for all.
At the end of each session we always have time for a cuppa and chat, the social element and group belonging is what this project is all about. If you know of a resident in the West Swindon area that could benefit from this session please contact GenerationGains@GLL.ORG to find out more.
The session’s that this project offers will focus on activities to engage with older members of the community, keeping them active and independent for longer regardless of their personal circumstances.
Working in partnership with and funded by the Zurich Community Trust, ‘Generation Gains’ is a two-year inter-generational pilot programme which is being evaluated by Bath University. The programme will allow Better Apprentices to ‘earn while they learn’ gaining qualifications in health and fitness, leisure operations and sport coaching, as well as acquiring skills to engage with the local community.
To help with our research on the Generation Gains project we will be asking all participants to fill in a short questionnaire.
