Still young enough

Our campaign Still Young Enough to… promotes healthy lifestyles for older people across Norfolk. It encourages us to keep our minds and bodies active so we can help maintain our health in later years and remain independent for as long as possible.

It also reminds us that getting older doesn’t mean we have to stop living a healthy and fulfilling life, or be proud of who we are.

Keeping your body active  - how much is enough?

Studies show that adults should aim to be active every day and take part in 150 minutes of moderate activity a week.

You can use Active Norfolk's activity finder to find activities while are accessible for older people.
