Active Steps & Falls and Balance

Falls And Balance Programme Logo

Falls and Balance Programme 

Falls and Balance is a specialised exercise programme for people who have experienced a fall. 
You are required to attend 1 session per week at your chosen location (community venue as shown in the timetable), for a period of 12 weeks. 

The programme will help you to continue being active and improve your confidence and independence.  It aims to prevent you from falling again, by using exercises that work on your mobility, strength, stamina, posture, balance and co-ordination. 

The Falls and Balance programme structure:

  • We understand that people are at different levels and that people fall for different reasons.  When you start the programme we will guide you through a brief assessment to help assess your needs and design an individualized programme.  
  • Throughout the Falls and Balance programme we will work with you to tailor the exercises and to ensure your individual benefit and progression. 
  • Throughout the programme optional information sessions will be provided on relevant health education topics.
  • At the end of the 12 week programme we will re-assess to provide you with the most appropriate information and advice on what to do next.  We will be able to provide information on, and signpost to other programmes and services. 
  • Following a period after completion of the programme, we will re-contact you to see how you are getting on and see if you need any further support.
