Help Get Older Adults Active in Your Community

Merseyside Sports Partnership is supporting social enterprise Oomph! to offer out a sustainable proposal to encourage community organisations across the Liverpool City Region to improve physical activity levels of older adults aged 65+.

Oomph! is an award winning social enterprise on a mission to ensure that older and vulnerable adults across the UK live life to the full. They believe that physical activity should be a habit to be enjoyed by older adults living in the community, delivered in familiar venues by familiar people.

Oomph has received £914,000 from Sport England, as the largest recipient of their new ‘Active Ageing’ fund. Through this funding, the aim is to get 27,000 inactive older adults active for at least 30 minutes a week through partnering with organisations who are experts in older adults, providing accredited training and support to these organisations to maximise their resources to enable older people to enjoy fun, accessible and sustainable activity.

Organisations in the Liverpool City Region can take up a heavily subsidised and sustainable package of support from Oomph! in order to increase activity levels and outcomes for older adults. This opportunity is open to organisations who support groups of older adults in the Liverpool City Region.
