Active Ageing Program – What you need to know!

Exercise Right for Active Ageing is a national program designed for older Australians over 65. Funding from the Australian Government’s Move it AUS – Better Ageing Grants Program subsidises 12 group exercise classes.

The program aims to help you: 

  • Move more through affordable exercise classes led by university qualified professionals
  • Improve your quality of life and overall health
  • Connect with like-minded people in a fun and friendly setting

About the program 

The program is open to inactive older Australians over 65. Indigenous Australians who are over 55 can also enrol in the program. You must complete a pre-screening assessment prior to commencing the classes. This can be done over the phone or via video.

Our program is suitable for those:

  • With a chronic condition, injury or illness
  • Who are on the wait list for an Australian Government Home Care package
  • Not accessing allied health services through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme

If you are living with a chronic condition, injury or illness, more information on how exercise can help you is available here.

If you have a lung condition, your Lung Foundation Australia ‘Lungs in Action’ exercise physiology instructor can apply to deliver our program.

Are you eligible? 

Each participant may be eligible for:

  • 1 x pre-exercise screening
  • 1 x pre-assessment
  • 12 x shorter 20, 30 or 45 minute sessions via Telehealth OR
  • 12 x 1-hour in-person sessions
  • 1 x free post-assessment

How much does it cost? 

To access the government subsidies, we require the following co-payments:

  • $8.00 for each one hour in-person class

The subsidies only apply 12 classes no matter how long a class you do.

Your final assessment is provided free of charge. An additional one-off payment is also required for your pre-assessment which varies depending on where you live. Please contact your local provider for more information.
