Sport England award ESCAPE-pain a grant to tackle inactivity

October 27, 2017

Inactivity among the over 55s is responsible for as many deaths as smoking. Research has shown that as you get older, you’re far more likely to do less than 30 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity a week.

Sport England is investing £10 million of National Lottery funding into projects that will help inactive people to become active. The Active Ageing fund is supporting innovative and experimental approaches that put older people at the heart of efforts to tackle inactivity.

They are investing up to £10 million of National Lottery money into 20 projects across England that are working to reduce the number of inactive older adults.

Today, they announced ESCAPE-pain has been awarded funding as part of the Active Ageing funding programme to continue to deliver their Rehabilitation programme for people with Arthritic pain in south London.
