Welcome to our Falls Prevention Service
Since 2011, we’ve been dedicated to providing essential falls prevention programs to our community. We understand that preventing falls is a concern that affects everyone.
Are you worried about you or a loved one falling? You’re not alone. For older individuals, falls can lead to injuries and more. They can shatter your confidence, make you feel isolated, and even challenge your independence. That’s where we step in, offering our expertise to help you maintain your well-being.
Our focus is on older adults, who deserve to live life to the fullest without fear of falling. If you’ve experienced a fall or are concerned about yours or others’ strength or balance, we’re here to support you. Don’t let falls hold you back.
Who Can Benefit?
Our Falls Prevention Service is tailored for all older adults at risk of falling. Whether you’re seeking to improve mobility or need to gain confidence, strength or balance after a fall, we’re here for you.

The sessions run live online on Monday mornings at 10.30 am, so attendees can exercise in the comfort of their own home and with support or supervision from family members or carers if required. We show both seated and standing options of all the exercises, to suit all abilities.
