You're invited to join in with a programme of celebratory events highlighting the importance of physical activity and active ageing for older people

Active Ageing Events can provide an opportunity for local organisations to celebrate participation in physical activity, exercise and sporting opportunities by older people of all ages, abilities and interests.

The BHF National Centre began the Active Ageing Events programme in July 2010. The programme is designed to:

  • provide a national and local profile to celebrate and promote the concept of active ageing
  • provide support for local Active Ageing Events and programmes
  • stimulate debate and policy on active ageing
  • ensure that older people are included in the range of events designed to leave a health and physical activity legacy.

Physical activity celebration, challenges, participation and promotion should be key elements of any Active Ageing Event. For help on how to organise your own event see our resources section.
