60 Plus Active Leisure Scheme
This is a project targeted at people aged 60+ who are not active or those who do not participate in activity very often. In consultation with the local 60+ population and our partners, we have organised a programme of activities to give people the chance to try out new activities and if they like them, continue to participate.
This project aims to not only increase the amount of time people are active but also hopes to increase opportunities to meet new people and socialise with others.
Three new projects are currently being coordinated across the Vale –
- Golden Pass (Vale Wide) – This project offers Vale residents aged 60+ the opportunity to access eight free sessions of sport and physical activity in their community. We ideally want to hear from residents who do little or no physically activity normally. To access a Golden Pass, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or complete the form.
- Golden Fund (Vale Wide) – up to £500 funding is available for groups/organisations to create new activity targeting the 60+ age group. The Healthy Living Team are working to create a menu of activities that is inclusive, accessible and attractive for the age group. To access the application form, please follow this link. For more information, please contact email@example.com.
- Golden Activators (Vale Wide) – the Healthy Living Team have recently recruited six new volunteers to help more people aged 60+ become more active. For more information, please follow this link to the press release. If you are interested in becoming a Golden Activator, please complete the application form.
