Age UK Hull have launched two new weekly Walking Football sessions!
This local scheme is part of a wider Age UK Walking Football Programme supported by both The Football Association and Sport England to help older people in communities to keep active and to improve physical and mental wellbeing through playing the game.
Cheryl Beal Services Manager at Age UK Hull said: “We’re thrilled to have launched the Age UK Walking Football Programme within our local area, thanks to funding from The Football Association and Sport England. Being active is good for physical and mental health whatever your age and it’s especially important as we get older. It can improve confidence and wellbeing, help older people live independently for longer, and reduce isolation and loneliness. It’s been a difficult time for older people in our community during the pandemic, and our Walking Football programme will be a great opportunity for older people to feel active and socialise in a safe and fun environment.”
