Our buddies are here to welcome, inspire, support and encourage you to become more physically active. They understand the fears and challenges older people face, and will provide a caring, listening ear so you can talk through any concerns. Buddies are non-judgemental and can help you to cement new friendships.
Our buddies are not able to give medical advice but will point you in the right direction when it comes to physical activity and exercise. They will give you useful information to help you decide on different activities. Our Buddies are all valued members of the Mytime Active and Primetime team, and aim to provide a positive role model to help you start your journey towards healthy living and successful ageing.
"I had been advised to do more exercise by my GP and came along to my first class full of trepidation. I was greeted by Buddy Caryl who showed me round and introduced me to the instructor. After the class we had coffee in the cafe with another buddy Wendy. I had been feeling very lonely but meeting the buddies made me feel like I knew someone even on my first visit. I will definitely be back and try more sessions now. What a wonderful scheme to make us older visitors feel welcome. Thank you."
