Age & Opportunity Active Programme FitLine Volunteer Mentors

We are expanding our FitLine initiative to reach more older adults right across the country and are currently recruiting more volunteer mentors to join the team, to help us deliver this very worthwhile initiative.

FitLine, one of our Active programme initiatives, is a volunteer peer led telephone based motivation line which encourages older adults to introduce physical activity into their daily lives. FitLine is designed to help people who want to feel a bit healthier but just don’t have the motivation, confidence or information on where and how to take that first step.

FitLine mentor volunteers are required to provide encouragement and ideas about how older adults can do simple physical activities as part of their day to day routine to suit their own lifestyle, and to provide information about clubs, groups and facilities in their own communities.

Full details are set out in this document.
