The impact of restrictions in adults in later life

One in five adults in later life (approximately 2.3 million nationally, 23,500 in Bucks and MK) or 18% say they feel less steady on their feet than before the pandemic.

Leap is working to address this by ensuring we have a range of fun, safe, appropriate and accessible activities. These sessions will support adults in later life to rebuild their strength, balance and emotional resilience.

Are you an instructor, coach, PT, club or leisure centre who want to be part of the recovery movement to help adults in later life take part in low to moderate intensity activities? Read on!

Uniting the Movement

Leap welcome Sport England’s release of its first-year Implementation Plan against its 10-year strategy ‘Uniting the Movement’. The Active Partnership for Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes has been involved at all stages of consultation, the Implementation Plan is the first step in the process moving from strategy to delivery, and building the movement. Leap Director Mark Ormerod says, as we begin the process of refreshing Leap’s 4 year Strategic Framework we now have a very clear picture from Sport England on their direction of travel. Uniting the Movement is exactly that, and I know from experience that our partners across Bucks and MK will embrace the direction of travel and help us improve people’s lives through physical activity and sport where it matters most locally.
