Age UK North West Kent
Kent Sport Small Grant
Strengthening & mobility equipment
About the project…
What impact did the funding have on your organisation?
We started a yoga group for our elderly clients and at first many were a bit hesitant, but as they became used to the movements and the fun they were having, they now thoroughly enjoy it. The equipment we have been able to purchase through the small grant scheme has helped to increase mobility and strengthen muscle tone.
How do you intend to continue the success of the project?
We aim to continue running the sessions as they are very popular and open them up to the wider community.
Did you encounter any challenges when attempting to set up the project?
People’s negative attitude to yoga was challenging at first, but the participants gradually changed their mindset when they realised how much good it was doing them.
