Older Men Moving: a new health and fitness project, supported by Tower Hamlets Clinical Commissioning Group

Green Candle Dance Company – has been awarded an Innovation Bursary by the Tower Hamlets Clinical Commissioning Group to launch a new project aimed at Tower Hamlets’ older men: ‘Older Men Moving’ will, from January 2013, offer weekly dance and exercise sessions to three different men’s groups in the borough. These sessions will continue for a year and participants’ health and wellbeing will be measured at regular intervals, to see what effect movement sessions have on men’s fitness and wellbeing. So far, two of the three groups have been identified – the Horwood Estate Men’s Group, meeting in the Bangla School in Pott Street (above) and the Sundial Men’s Group, meeting at the Sundial Centre in Shipton Street. One more group will be selected.
