Getting people active in a way that suits them
Following a successful Let’s Keep Moving group in Canvey, the project was extended to Benfleet offering residents a confidential safe place to connect, socialise and be active with others.
Let’s Keep Moving is about getting people moving and active in a way that suits them.
The local Patients Participant Group in Benfleet helped identify older residents who felt lonely, isolated and had limited opportunities to participate in moderate exercise.
By incorporating local knowledge, consulting with the Patients Participant Group on Rushbottom Lane and working with members from the successful Canvey Let’s Keep Moving group, we were able to replicate the model in Benfleet within 2 months.
