Active Ageing Project
Active Ageing is about creating the environments and opportunities that enable people to be and do what they value throughout their later life. This approach supports engagement with communities, promotes physical activity and social engagement and therefore helps maintain health and well-being.
The ACE study examines how we can support people who are 65 years and older to stay mobile and maintain their independence for longer. We will do this by matching older adults with volunteers who are themselves over 55 years old so they can get out and about in their local communities and enjoy being active together.
REACT (REtirement in ACTion) is a community-based programme that combines exercise, education and social activities designed for older adults starting to show mobility decline.
Project lead is Professor Afroditi Stathi
