What is the Stay Steady programme?
Stay Steady is a 6 month falls prevention exercise programme delivered by lifeLEISURE in partnership with Stockport MBC and Stockport Together. The programme supports participants to remain steady on their feet through simple but effective exercises.
All classes are delivered by qualified Postural Stability Instructors who provide a safe and enjoyable environment to encourage participants to gradually improve their strength, balance, coordination and mobility. Classes are free for the duration of the programme with the all-important tea, coffee and chat after each class!

To access the Stay Steady exercise classes, participants must have one of the following:

New individuals will meet one of our Stay Steady Instructors who will discuss the following on a 1-1 basis:
- Medical History
- Personal Falls History
- Undertake some simple functional exercises to assess whether the Stay Steady classes are suitable for their needs
Once an initial assessment has been completed and the individual has been cleared to participate, they can access any of the Stay Steady classes. After 6 weeks, they may also be given a home exercise plan, so they can also practice the exercises at home in their own time.
We encourage people to take part in the classes as much as possible and therefore there may be situations where a person may not be deemed suitable for the programme. In this instance, we may offer alternative activities or put them in touch with our colleagues from the Steady in Stockport service.

Due to the current pandemic Stay Steady classes are not currently running, however we hope to be in a position yo restart the programme soon as we will update this web page as soon as we have more information.
