Who We Are
Silverfit is an exciting, rapidly expanding charity led by older people for older people. We aim to promote happier, healthier ageing through physical activity and at the same time combat social isolation. Our `sandwich` formula of socialising /exercise/socialising for older people is unique, increasing activity levels and helping people make new friends, feel more confident and enjoy life as they age.Read More
Founded in 2013 we are run by our director Eddie Brocklesby and four trustees who are supported by four part-time freelancers. In addition, we have volunteers who mostly take on the role of ambassadors at our 14 venues where they welcome attendees and ensure the smooth running of the sessions. If you would like to support us by volunteering, have a suggestion for a new silver session location, would like to sponsor what we do or anything along those lines please get in touch!Contact us

OUR FOUNDER EDDIE WINS PRIDE OF SPORT TSB COMMUNITY PARTNER AWARD!
I discovered recently that Silverfit is doing me a world of good. I usually have to use a bath cushion to assist me when bathing, due to not being able to get out of the bath alone. One day I asked my carer to take the cushion out to see if I could turn over myself and use my knees to get up, I could! Because of the spin classes at Silverfit and my other physical activity, I can now get out of the bath independently. We have such a close knit group at The Castle and our spin instructor Viv is amazing
Silverfit has been great for me and I love it. I look forward to it every time.
I never dreamt I would do Nordic Walking three times a week - It's been really good for me. We never stop smiling.
