Every little helps

Leading a healthier, more active lifestyle doesn’t necessarily mean running a marathon or going to the gym - it could be brisk walking, dancing the foxtrot or bowls. Raising your heart rate for 30 minutes, several times a week, can lead to both physical and mental health benefits, and can help manage many conditions such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, stroke, joint problems and obesity, as well as lower the risk of other diseases such as Alzheimer's and depression.

Get active 50+, delivered by Active Surrey, is funded by Sport England, the Borough and District Councils and Surrey County Council Public Health exclusively for people aged 50 or over. It aims to improve health amongst older adults across Surrey, where one in four adults are deemed to be inactive and 40% are not meeting the Chief Medical Officer's (CMO) guideline of 150 minutes per week of moderate exercise.
