More than 700 people in 22 boroughs took part in the Mayor of London’s Get Moving scheme, aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of older Londoners.
This pilot project funded 16 community organisations to run free physical, social and creative activities, particularly targeted at more isolated groups of older people.
A review of the Get Moving scheme has now been published and explores:
- local provision
- building on what works
- older people as leaders, volunteers and co-designers of activities
- new tools to measure impact
- new methods to reach underserved groups
- stronger partnerships across health, social care, culture, local government and the voluntary sector
