Diverse Opportunities

Two programmes now running

Our latest programme in York has gone from strength to strength. Weekly community programmes are now taking place in an area with a high population of older persons. The programmes have engaged with a diversity of professional partners to deliver a service of added value and add depth to the long-term strategy of older people's services in York.

This is a wonderful scheme that targets social isolation and helps older, frail people build core stability and improve their health.

Balanced Lives takes place on Mondays at two locations:

Foxwood Community Centre



From: 10am-12noon


St Luke's Church Hall & Community Centre

I'm amazed that I'm now able to do things that I just couldn't do before taking part in Balanced Lives. I can raise my arms without pain and feel much more independent. Elsie, York Balanced Lives participant
