MORE EVENTS COMING SOON

The Mind your Step! roadshow pilot was developed to create opportunities for older adults aged 60+ to gain knowledge, advice and guidance on falls prevention in a neighbourhood venue.

A number of key services, all with a focus on falls prevention, attended the first 2 events (pre-lockdown): MLCO Falls Teams (North, Central, South) Age UK, GMFRS Community Safety, buzz PARS team, buzz Age Friendly team and Manchester Care & Repair.

The initial events included a free lunch offered to attendees. A plan for the day was set to enable services to interact with attendees, deliver activities and give people the opportunity to ask questions specific to their individual needs. Activities included:

  • Falls bingo
  • Active ageing quiz
  • Strength and balance demo
  • Super six demo
  • Exercise band demo
  • Service talks
  • Information and feedback stall
