Live Longer Better in Cumbria - The Revolution Continues
April 3, 2023
You are cordially invited to join us for the Spring on-line event of Live Longer Better in Cumbria – The Revolution Continues. Live Longer Better in Cumbria is Active Cumbria’s programme to support Older Adults, particularly those with or at risk of long-term health conditions, to be more active.
If you were not fortunate enough attend the programme’s launch event last year (or even if you were!), this is a fresh opportunity to explore ageism, health inequalities and the opportunity to use physical activity as a vehicle for change.
When: Thursday 27 April 2023
Time: 10am - 11.30am
Where: On-line via TEAMS
Register your attendance via out Eventbrite page here:
Active Cumbria is one of several Active Partnerships from across England involved in the Live Longer Better national programme. Led by former Chief Knowledge officer to the NHS Sir Muir Gray, the movement aims to enable people to live longer better, reduce the need for health and social care and reverse the effects of lockdown.
Sir Muir Gray himself will give a keynote speech about the Live Longer Better national movement and how it is challenging ageism, inactivity, dementia and frailty through knowledge, systems and networks. Other guest speakers will consider the importance of Live Longer Better in Cumbria for our most disadvantaged communities as well as the benefits of joining the UK’s Age Friendly Communities Network.
Learn more too about sources of funding including The Reconditioning Fund, which can be used for projects in Cumbria which: increase physical ability and movement, resilience and healthspan; reduce the risk of, and delay or prevent dementia; and prevent and minimise the effects of disease and multimorbidity including long COVID.
CLIC (Cumbria Learning and Improvement Collaborative) and Active Cumbria have collaborated on this event and we look forward to both your attendance and your support of the programme going forward.
