Ageing Well Project

This multi-award winning project helps over 400 older people stay active and healthy each week in Edinburgh. Our activities have been developed to cater for a wide range of tastes and abilities. They take place in community venues throughout the city, and are led by trained Ageing Well volunteer leaders.

Funded by NHS Lothian and run by Edinburgh Leisure, in partnership with Pilmeny Development Project. Ageing Well Edinburgh has had over 10 successful years of making a significant difference in the lives of those over 50’s who regularly attend our activities.

Gentle Chair Based Exercises

Chair based exercises are for those who are unable to participate in more active types of exercise.

The aim is to encourage the participants to be active within their ability. The classes provide gentle exercises to help maintain and improve muscle tone and coordination. It also provides the participants with the opportunity to get out and about and meet other people.

The Ageing Well project offers chair based exercise sessions at Lochend Neighbourhood Centre every Friday from 3pm - 4pm.

These sessions are led by qualified Ageing Well Volunteers, older people themselves who want to share their love of being active.

The exercises are easy and fun to do and suitable for all abilities.

There is no fee, but a voluntary contribution of £1 per session is welcome.

No need to book, just turn up!
