The first Friendship & Exercise Club was established in February 2011 and since that time there have been new clubs starting all across South Gloucestershire and one in Bristol. The objective is to target isolated older people of all abilities, and to engage them in physical and social activity. The philosophy of the Friendship & Exercise Club model is to offer people a feeling of ownership and belonging to the club. The aim is to continue in keeping people active in older age, build friendships, and most importantly improve self confidence and maintain independence.
All the clubs are run and delivered by Sporting Chance (Fitness for Life). The Active Lifestyles division of South Gloucestershire Council (SGC) plays a key role in setting up the clubs. SGC help to source initial funding and find suitable venues for new groups. This working partnership has proven to be instrumental in the success of the clubs to date.
