spearheaded one of the UK’s first physical activity and
sport initiatives for older people.

The specially-targeted programme aims to get more people
from the local area and over the age of 55, involved more
regularly, in physical activity, coaching and volunteering.

Better co-ordination of sports provision, creative means for
improved participation and more accessible opportunities are
just three of the key areas Active Ageing Bristol will explore                               3
and look to implement.

Karen Lloyd, Active Ageing Bristol Manager said:
“The guides are based on the wealth of existing
provision in the greater Bristol area. Over time,
Active Ageing Bristol will both sustain and
develop new opportunities to encourage older
people to become and stay active.”

                 “Active Ageing Bristol is an opportunity
                 to really make a difference to older
                 people across the city. What we are
                 looking to do is build pathways to
                 friendship, and put an end to inactivity.”

About Sponsors




                 “We are proud to support this initiative
                 and be a key player in its development
                 and implementation. 36% of people
                 aged 55+ are inactive. A 30 minute
                 daily walk for example can make a huge
                 difference.”

                 Richard Pendlebury, CEO said:
                 “Many older people can suffer from
                 feelings of isolation and loneliness.
                 Participation in physical activity is a
                 great way to meet new friends. We look
                 forward to seeing more older people
                 getting involved with the programme.”
