Ageing Well

We’re so happy to be back and delivering some of the Ageing Well activities we love. Like everyone, we’ve had to adapt for COVID-19. Things might be a little different and not all of our activities will be starting immediately, but our friendly team of staff and volunteers are here to welcome you back and help you stay active with us in a safe, but most of all enjoyable, environment.

Our walking programme and allotment are the first of our activities to return, please click here for details of our current walking programme including a useful walking level guide and click here for information on our allotment programme.

The Ageing Well Project run by Edinburgh Leisure in partnership with NHS Lothian, delivers a range of city-wide activities which support people to become, and remain, active in later life.


The emphasis is on meeting new people and making physical activity accessible and enjoyable. All Ageing Well activities are subsidised with voluntary contributions starting from as little as £1.


Ageing Well activities have been developed to cater for a wide range of tastes and abilities and all activities are either led by or supported by fully trained volunteers, who are all older adults themselves. 

Our Ageing Well programme relies on the generous support of volunteers to deliver activities and improve lives. But it’s not just Ageing Well who will benefit from your gift of time. Volunteers say that they develop deeper connections within their communities, feel better physically, mentally and emotionally; and are better able to manage health conditions such as stress.
