Later Life community exercise programme

The Camden Later Life physical activity programme  (over 55, but caters for people who need more support )  is now delivered directly by Better. 

Payment for the Later Life classes is through vouchers (£3/session), which you can buy at all of the Better leisure centre receptions in Camden. In order to buy the vouchers you need to take out a “Pay and Play “ membership which costs £5.40 for Camden residents.

Participants with pre-paid memberships do not need to purchase vouchers, as the classes are included within your membership.
