Steady Steps Falls Prevention Programme

Steady Steps Classes 2018 19

Steady Steps Falls Prevention Programme aims to improve balance, coordination and mobility.

The programme is aimed at anyone over 65 who is at risk of falling, or who has a fear of falling.

The new classes in 2018 and 19 will take place across Charnwood and will run for 24 weeks offering a progressive set of exercises carefully designed to help reduce your risk of falling.

The classes are fully funded so are free to attend, following a conversation to assess the suitability of the programme for you.

Current classes are full, however due to demand further new classes will begin in early 2019 across Charnwood.

If you are interested to take part please get in touch and we can add you to our register or interest, first come first served.

Steady Steps Maintainers Classes

There are also two ongoing 'Maintainers' classes taking place in Loughborough and Thurmaston. These classes are suitable for people who have been through the Falls Prevention / Steady Steps program previously, or for people who are looking for a moderately intensive chair based exercise group. These classes are part-funded so there is a cost of £3 per session.

The Maintainers classes are organised through the Sport and Active Recreation Team.
