Falls Prevention Service

Falls are not only the result of getting older. Many falls can be prevented. The Falls Service offers help and advice to help older people avoid falls and to regain confidence if they have fallen. Their emphasis is on assessment, rehabilitation and exercise as this is the most important intervention that helps to reduce falls and fractures.

Move Together

This initiative, funded by Oxfordshire County Council and coordinated by Active Oxfordshire, is a new programme to get everyone active. It is based on the idea that activity is always a good thing, provided it is tailored to your health and physical condition.
