About Healthy Communities Active Ageing Officer

Get Berkshire Active works with organisations across Berkshire to increase participation in sport and physical activity. Our overriding aim is to use physical activity to contribute to health, community, social and economic agendas across Berkshire, alongside the personal development of individuals. We provide our partners with advice, expertise, funding and advocacy support to achieve these shared aims. Alongside this, we deliver a number of projects to encourage people to be active.

We are seeking an individual with a passion for making a difference to play an integral role in the coordination and delivery of our Ever Active programmes as well as other areas of work with a focus on the ageing population. The post holder will be required to organise, coordinate and (on some occasions) deliver appropriate interventions, in consultation with communities. These programmes aim to improve health and increased levels of physical activity alongside improved social connections and mental well-being, ultimately striving to reduce social isolation and loneliness. These programmes target the ageing population and people with disabilities and long-term health conditions. Programmes delivered by GBA involve significant numbers of partners working together and the post-holder will be required to manage delivery partnerships to achieve results.

The post-holder will also support other projects or areas of work focused on using physical activity as a vehicle to improve physical, mental and social health.
