How Do I ?

“Go for Life”

The Go for Life Programme is getting older people more active, more often. It helps older people to plan and to lead activities and sports. They give talks and demonstrations about how to get more active, keep healthy and stay safe. They also fund groups who are getting older people more active. They have lots of ideas for activities that can be done – either alone or with friends. So why not get in touch with them.
