Live Longer Better network and learning session

Join Kent Sport for our first Live Longer Better network and learning session as we learn how we can work together to encourage longer, healthier and happier lives for older adults.

During the session...

  • Sir Muir Gray will introduce the Live Longer Better revolution. Live Longer Better aims to improve the wellbeing of older people and increase healthy life expectancy, thus reducing the need for health and social services. Sir Muir Gray is widely recognised as one of the most creative minds in British medicine and was knighted for his services to the NHS.
  • Local projects will share how they are introducing and embedding movement & physical activity into the services and programmes that they deliver for older people.
  • You will have a chance to discuss what actions you can take away and put into practice locally.

Why are we involved with the Live Longer Better revolution?

The number of people over the age of 80 will double within 10 years​ and the majority of those age 65+ will experience poor health for more than half their remaining years. Added to which there are worrying levels of inactivity. The impact of Covid-19 and lockdown, particularly for older adults and the resulting deconditioning and isolation, is making the issue worse and has laid bare the urgency of improving the state of ageing​.

Without a change of approach, the already stretched health and social care system will face significant challenges.

We hope you will join us online for this first event as we look to grow this network across the county
