The CSP has developed a series of resources to help members promote the role of physio in keeping older people fit and healthy:

  • The Get Up and Go guide produced by Saga, in association with the CSP and Public Health England (PHE) and with substantial input from AGILE members, gives advice on how older people can prevent falls and stay steady
  • A new Get Up and Go exercise supplement featuring six exercises for staying steady
  • The Your Generation leaflet, which provides tips on falls prevention
  • The Timed Up and Go video which helps the public calculate a person’s risk of falling is available at Produced with input from AGILE members, this includes an interview with chartered physiotherapist Louise McGregor
