Our Work

Active Ageing

Active Humber has been working through the Get Out Get Active Programme to bring physical activity and movement to people over the age of 55.

Working with partners we aim to.

  • Use physical activity to support those less able, reducing social isolation, enabling independence, and improving both physical and emotional wellbeing.
  • Empower and upskill the local activity infrastructure to support the needs and challenges of an ageing population. We will create a culture where people think, 'what next?' and activity will become a continuous journey throughout their life.
  • Work with a wider variety of partners and providers to enable older people to sustain existing activity and 'do more' or 'something different', not 'do less' as they age.
  • Nurture a culture of active living for those with sedentary behaviours, to enable people to age well, both physically and emotionally.
  • Grow and enhance the existing workforce and provision to create a diverse range of opportunities that are inclusive, appealing and safe.

The Get Out Get Active programme which started in March 2020 and completed in November 2023 supported over 800 people in the Humber living with a long term health condition to get active and stay active. 

The funding from Spirit of 2012 and the London Marathon Trust enabled Active Humber to deliver 32 sustainable activities across the Humber region. 

These sessions worked with several organisations of the VSCE sector, health and local authorities.

Discover some of the ways we worked to supported people living across the Humber region over the three years in the video below:
