    Abstract

    Physical activity directly benefits older people’s health and wellbeing and is a core component of the active ageing agenda. To retain functional capacity and independence in older age, people need to lead physically active lifestyles. However, physical in-activity continues to be highly prevalent in the UK, especially amongst older people. The objective, therefore, of this symposium is to provide a forum for BSG delegates to discuss the important issue of physical activity promotion. A multidisciplinary team - representing health psychology, nursing, urban engineering, and public health - will bring together the latest research in their area across four inter-related papers.
