Support For Elderly Participants

Support For Elderly Participants

As part of the Trust’s ongoing commitment to the welfare of those who take part in the organisation’s activities, staff will act as a point of contact for elderly and vulnerable participants.

Staff will engage with elderly people who attend the Senior Spireites exercise group and the Spireites Speakeasy to determine if they require any support in the event of self-isolation.

Elderly members of the community are encouraged to follow the lead of Senior Spireites exercise group participants who take part in chair-based exercises. To learn how you can do gentle exercises in your home, please take a look at some useful information from the NHS here.

John Croot, chief executive of Chesterfield FC Community Trust, said: “It is important that we all look out for each other and we will do what we can to help those in need during this difficult time.

“Ensuring the health and wellbeing of everyone is vitally important so people need to be aware of anything they can do to improve their physical and mental health. Sport England encourage people to stay active, wherever possible, which is now more important than ever.”
