What is Ever Active?

Being physically active has been proven to increase individuals' mental health and social life, as well as reducing the risk of many physical health issues. Ever Active is a programme that supports older & disabled adults who are seeking to improve their health and fitness and reduce feelings of loneliness and social isolation.

Please note that currently Ever Active is funded by Reading Borough Council and West Berkshire Council and therefore only available in these areas.

Facts and Figures

How We'll Do It

All Ever Active sessions are low to moderate intensity and everyone is encouraged to take sessions at their own pace. A typical session also features opportunities for attendees to socialise with new friends. Sessions are delivered in a friendly and supportive group environment, led by qualified individuals and structures to help improve physical activity levels, mental and social health.

GBA can also support established social groups to be more active by providing equipment & training

Pat, from Newbury said:

My husband uses a wheelchair and it doesn't make any difference - he's just one of the gang and can participate on the same level as everyone else. John has taught him the basics and every week is a good laugh. It's a great opportunity to make new friends and be active in a sport that is accessible to everyone whatever their ability or disability. We try to make it every week but if we miss the odd one due to family commitments it doesn't matter
