Active Ageing

Active Norfolk continues to take a strategic lead in helping people In Norfolk to age well and maintain their independence in later life. Initially through the Mobile Me project, which saw Active Norfolk install activity sessions in care homes and residential settings, and through subsequent projects which have built on the findings of the Mobile Me project.

If you have a health condition which may inhibit you doing exercise, visit our Your Health pages for recommendations specific to your condition

Older people in Norfolk are being encouraged to take increasing responsibility for their own health through maintaining their activity levels and doing regular strength and conditioning exercises. If you are involved in the provision of care or work with older people on a regular basis, click through the pages below to have a look at ways in which you can help older people maintain their independence using evidence from similar projects in the county. Please get in touch with Ryan Hughes at Active Norfolk to find out more about ways we can work together to improve the health of people you work with.

Ryan Hughes

Physical Activity Project Officer (Mobile Me)

I have a background of working on various community based programmes across Norfolk, as well as studying Sport and Education Studies at the University of Northampton. The experience I gained lead me to my current post with Active Norfolk overseeing our older people work, which focuses on the over 65s and is designed to address barriers to participation within this age group, and increase opportunities for Norfolk's older population to have access to physical activity.

In my spare time I enjoy playing/watching multiple sports including squash, badminton and football, in particular following the hugely successful Chelsea FC. I also like to travel, when time and money allows.
