Steps to Change

Posted on 26-03-2019 by Maria Hughes

Steps to Change is a programme run by Aquarius, offering a range of activities for over 55s who are affected by alcohol, drugs and gambling. The service is also offered to family, friends and carers.

They provide an alternative to substance misuse, and the activities help to prevent isolation, increase physical activity, improve mental and physical health and support people to make social connections.

The programme lasts 12 weeks, and involves a range of half-hour exercise sessions including walking, cycling and swimming.

Participants can refer themselves or can be referred by other agencies. To find out more, call 0121 622 8181 or email stepstochange@aquarius.org.uk.
