As we get older, we become less likely to be active, over half of all inactive people in England are aged 55 and over. We know that the barriers to being active as you age aren't necessarily related to age or physical ability. We also know that for older adults, making small changes to move a little bit more can have a massive impact on health and happiness. Here you will find the latest research related to the physical activity and sport levels, motivations and barriers of older adults.
We know there are inequalities within physical activity, this section explores research to understand these in more detail and learn from evidence of how to approach these.
As we learn more about taking a whole system approach to physical activity this section will gather key research and evidence to support our work.
