A chair-based exercise programme aims to help improve the lifestyle and health of tenants in supported housing schemes.

Qualified instructors from Sportspace will be leading the older residents at Dacorum Borough Council-run schemes.

The free seated exercise sessions aim to improve the mobility, strength, balance, flexibility and coordination of those taking part.

Council group manager for housing Andy Vincent said: “We are keen to provide new and interesting activities to involve our supported tenants. These new exercise sessions are specially targeted at our older residents to help them stay mobile and active, so they can live independently for longer, and also provides a chance to socialise with their neighbours.”

If these initial sessions are a success, more will be added at other locations. Tenants interested in taking part should call 01442 228000 and ask for ‘supported housing’.
