Funded by Life Changes Trust.

Collaboration with Paths for All.

Sit Less Move More – Creating a culture of activity and movement in a care home setting This project will carry out research to explore factors within care home settings that foster increased cultures of physical activity, and that will enable residents to be more physically active, in order to provide best practice guidance and resources to support physical activities within care homes. The project will use a combination of qualitative and quantitative methodologies to develop a logic model and theory of change which can explain factors that facilitate or pose barriers to cultures of physical activity among care home residents. Project outputs will include best practice resources and a toolkit to support physical activities among care home residents.
