How to take part

Action for Elders Programmes in Swansea

Our regular weekly groups in Swansea include our ‘Balanced Lives’ programmes and our ‘Better Together’ social programmes.

These include our Social Hub, Balanced Lives exercise groups in Swansea, the Swansea walking group and our Tea and Chat social group.

The groups are open to people of all abilities.

Suitable for all abilities

The classes contain a mix of exercise and social activities, including gentle exercise for all abilities, basic health advice and the chance to share your life and skills with other people.

It is an opportunity to meet with people of similar age and interests and to get some suggestions to improve overall health and well-being in a friendly, helpful environment. If you enjoy the company of others and would like our mix of exercise and social activity, these are the perfect classes for you.

Success Stories


Shirley's Story

Our latest Case Study from Swansea is a heartwarming example of how the social and physical connection that Action for Elders offers at its groups can help people become more resilient in their later life.

Shirley had become isolated, depressed and anxious during Covid with only the occasional visit from one of her family to liven up her life. Then she discovered our “Getting Back out There” campaign.

Our social events were the start of the way back and Shirley has become an enthusiastic participant at many of our events and at our Balanced Lives exercise programme in Blackpill.

‘Action for Elders have been great to me throughout the years as well as supporting me during lockdown. I am not able to attend all the wonderful programmes you offer because of distance and the rising costs of petrol. But I can’t say enough good things about what you do and the support you provide. I’ve made many new friends by attending your programmes. It’s made a real difference to me.’’
