Combat Accidental Falls

Home » Latest News » Combat Accidental Falls

An older person dies every five hours as a result of a fall according to the latest national figures released, and now a campaign to cut the number of falls has been launched in Cheshire East. 

Cheshire East Council's health improvement team and its partners are running low cost classes for those aged 65 and over. 

The classes are called 'Be Steady Be Safe' and are designed to improve balance, strength and confidence. 

The classes are available across the borough at a cost of £2 and no booking is required. 

Organisers can be contacted on: 01270 685794 or via email: BeSteadyBeSafe@cheshireeast.gov.uk 

The more local classes take place as follows: 

Nantwich on Wednesdays between 9.30am and 10.30am and between 11am and Noon (Mill House, Queens Drive, Nantwich).

Crewe on Wednesdays between 1.30pm and 2.30pm (Jubilee House, St Pauls Street, Crewe).

Crewe on Thursdays between 10.30am and 11.30am (Pickmere, Rose Terrace, Crewe).
