How to engage with older men in health and wellbeing projects.

 This is the title of the presentation that Roger Jones, Older Men’s Network (for Health and Well Being) will be giving at the conference Getting Older People Physically Active.

This event takes place on 4th November at Chesterfield FC Community Trust, Derbyshire and will be presenting new ways of engaging and retaining older people in sport and physical activity producing psychological, physical and social benefits

This presentation will cover how older men are notoriously difficult to attract into health and wellbeing projects and indeed to take an active interest in their health.  This presentation will cover a number of ways we can improve the way we get older men physically active.

The Older Men’s Network was born from the legacy of Age UK‘s National Fit as a Fiddle project targeting Older Men’s Health and Well Being.

The Network continues to work as a consultancy for Older Men with Age UK but now works in partnership with a variety of organisations looking to develop groups / activities /training which will attract/engage/motivate men to a healthier happier and more fulfilled later life.

The Network also has a portfolio of training packages, examining the best ways to engage with older men, the barriers to overcome and how to make a success of Older Men’s projects. This includes the highly successful OLDER MENS’S CHAMPION’S training.

Roger Jones has worked in older peoples services for the last 25 years and with older men for the last ten.
