Sheffield Event

Welcome to "A Community in Conversation: Have Your Say on Healthy Ageing in South Yorkshire" hosted by the Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre at Sheffield Hallam University.

We invite you to contribute to this transformative dialogue.

Join us on 09th February, at Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre, Sheffield Hallam University, Olympic Legacy Park, 2 Old Hall Road, Sheffield, S9 3TU from 10:00 to 16:00. The day will feature a series of engaging information sessions and interactive workshops.

As we live longer, our focus should shift to living longer in good health. Despite increasing life expectancy in the UK, healthy life expectancy has not seen similar improvements, with disparities driven by social, ethnic, and geographical factors. ATTAIN concentrates on the role of physical activity in promoting a healthy life.

Physical activity encompasses not just sports but also hobbies like gardening, daily movements such as housework, and artistic activities like dance. Our aim is to delve into the challenges communities face in fostering a physically active lifestyle, particularly in socially deprived and ethnic minority areas. ATTAIN seeks to develop understanding, capacity, and collaborative networks to address these challenges.

This UK-wide initiative involves workshop events in each of the four cities and three nations within the ATTAIN network. Outcomes from these events will offer insights into the diverse physical activity challenges across the UK.

In Sheffield, we aim to spotlight areas for improvement and emphasize Sheffield's potential leadership. We believe in bringing research and communities closer together, a goal we strive to achieve through ATTAIN and the Sheffield event.


Secure your spot by confirming your attendance through Eventbrite before 09th February 2024.
