Catering for Rural Needs

Consistently successful community programme 

Running in a rural suburb of the city of Hereford, this is one of the first programmes that Action For Elders set up back in 2011. It has run consistently on a weekly basis and has gone from strength to strength. It’s been hugely successful both in improving mobility and tackling the problem of social isolation of older people in the community. A second programme in Brynwyn Court is to begin very soon. 

Donald Macrae, Director of the People's Health Trust which runs of the Health Lottery recently visited the programme and received a warm welcome.

I can feel the strength returning to my legs and arms. It's made a huge difference to my life.
