Strong and Steady Exercise Classes
Strong and Steady Exercise Classes are designed for people who feel unsteady on their feet or have had a fall. The classes aim to improve strength and balance, and also to help people feel more confident when out and about.
The Strong and Steady Exercise Classes are available by referral from your GP or other Health Professionals, or by self-referral using the form below. Once you have been referred, the Strong and Steady Co-ordinator will contact you to let you know where and when the classes are available. We will try to make this as close to your home as possible. Unfortunately we cannot provide transport but we can help you to find a local community transport scheme.
We have tried to answer any questions you may have on our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. For more information, or to book onto a course, please contact Active Herefordshire and Worcestershire on 01905 855498 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
