"Resistance training can 'reduce and reverse' elderly's frailty says academic"



We are currently working with care homes & schools around the UK for an exciting project, Move & Groove, kindly funded by Sir John Beckworth. The project is part of an innovative intergenerational pilot combining music and movement to tackle isolation, create connection and support in the overall wellbeing of young and old.

This project aims to ignite a creative and empowering intergenerational journey.
