About the Health & Wellbeing Activities Service

Age UK North Yorkshire & Darlington's Health and Wellbeing initiatives involve a wide variety of physical & mental exercises to help you to stay healthy, energetic and independent as you get older. A quarter of the English population is “inactive” – doing less than 30 minutes of activity per week. (Demographic 40-60 most at risk). Physical activity and exercise can have immediate and long-term health benefits; most importantly, regular activity can improve your quality of life, energy levels, fitness, strength and mobility and boost your mood. Ideally, you should aim to be active on a daily basis, but any amount of extra activity that is appropriate for your age and health will make a difference.

Our activity schedule has something for all abilities, ranging from Tai Chi and Yoga to local walks, weekly line dancing classes and even walking netball sessions.

Join, meet likeminded people and have fun whilst improving your health/you will you have a great time, improve your fitness levels and make new friends.

We want all to be included, so for those who can’t exercise, we have writers groups, language and music lessons.
