Love to Move

About the project

Dr Ana Barbosa, Ms Alison Elwood and Professor Gail Mountain are currently working with the British Gymnastics Association and Sports England to evaluate their Love to Move programme for older people living in care homes and in the community.

Love to Move is a gymnastics programme run by the British Gymnastics Foundation and that aims to get older people moving and functioning better.

We will be evaluating the impact of this programme over a two-year period. Deliverables include:

  • Design data collection packs.
  • Design and provide on-line training to inform and support paid employees to collect participant data.
  • Conduct qualitative interviews with a number of selected participants
  • On-going analysis of participant data

For more information about the programme, visit Love to Move | British Gymnastics Foundation or contact Dr Ana Barbosa.
