Reducing the chance of having a fall

Strength and balance classes

Some health conditions, hearing or sight impairments and simply getting older can affect our balance. The good news is that there are exercises to help you build strength, balance and boost your confidence. 

Get up and go is a 10-week programme. You don't need a referral to sign up and you can bring a friend or family member if they meet one or more of the eligibility requirements: 

  • a long-term health condition
  • concerns about balance, or a fear of falling
  • a history of a fall or loss of balance
  • most importantly, ready to try activities to improve your strength and balance

Classes are led by a trained fitness instructor and they take place throughout Ealing.
