Get Involved

There are many ways you can get involved with Age & Opportunity:

Become an Age & Opportunity Active Programme FitLine Volunteer Mentor

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 and fitter 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.

Closing date: 12 noon on Friday the 7th of January 2022.
