A Guide for Older Adults to be Active at Home During Covid-19 Outbreak
This ‘Active at Home’ booklet has been developed to support older people and those who are shielded to be active and healthy at home, and includes practical guidance on home-based activities.

This is part of the Sport England Join the Movement campaign. The campaign is designed to provide inspiration and trusted information to the public about how to get active in and around the home during the coronavirus pandemic.

Being active is good for our physical and mental wellbeing. This is why we should try to move regularly, including exercises to help stay strong and steady.

This particularly applies to those of us who have health conditions or are older who, during the coronavirus outbreak are spending more time at home. This can be frustrating and upsetting, and it can be harder to be active when you can’t do your normal daily activities. Download Booklet

Free Courses
The Government has added a further four courses to The Skills Toolkit, which allows people to access free, high quality online courses in digital and numeracy whilst at home.
The new free courses are an introductory course from Microsoft on using Microsoft Outlook, an introduction to bookkeeping from the Open University and an introduction to finance from independent training provider Corndel, plus an advanced course on how computer networks operate from the Open University in collaboration with Cisco.

The Skills Toolkit is available to everyone and has a range of courses from introductory to more advanced levels. These are skills that are sought after for many types of jobs, with 82% of job vacancies requiring digital skills.

South Brent and District Caring have introduced a listening line for people who find themselves overwhelmed by the current situation. It is a confidential service and the number is 01364 204357. Go to website

  • They have lost their job due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
  • They have still not received expected government funding (i.e self-employed).
