Silverfit is an exciting, rapidly expanding charity led by older people for older people. We aim to promote happier, healthier ageing through physical activity and at the same time combat social isolation. Our `sandwich` formula of socialising /exercise/socialising for older people is unique, increasing activity levels and helping people make new friends, feel more confident and enjoy life as they age.
By promoting happier, healthier ageing through affordable physical activity and at the same time combating social isolation we aim to improve older people's quality of life and also to save the NHS and social care providers money. Members tell us their increased fitness means they attend GP’s surgeries less, or are on reduced medication. Our remarkably high retention reflects that the social element is as highly valued, if not more so, than the physical activity. We make sure no-one is excluded because of cost, membership is £12 pa, with sessions prices from free to £3 depending on venue funding.
