Active Lincolnshire in partnership with the Centre for Ageing Better are hosting a collaborative learning opportunity for physical activity providers and partners to accelerate learning and development for the relationship between physical activity and older adults.

As a key stakeholder in Lincolnshire, we are inviting you/your organisation to join us on Wednesday 8th February at the New Life Centre, Sleaford from 1.30pm for attendance at the Older Adults and Physical Activity Workshop.

The aims of this workshop are for attendees to better understand older adults, to develop practical actions to apply your work and identify ways in which to enhance promotion for this demographic.

So what?

This workshop will frame the collective journey we are on as contributors to the Let’s Move Lincolnshire strategy, to understand the county’s unique position regarding this demographic. Resulting in the sport and physical activity sector better enabling more people to be more active, more often.
