Charity receives funding for over 60's dance and movement
Move into Wellbeing (MiW) has been given funding which will allow it to significantly expand its activities in Chiswick.
The charity, which was founded in Chiswick in 2015, provides Dance and Movement classes for people with mobility restrictions.
The grant from Hounslow Council's Thriving Communities Fund will help support Over 60’s dance and movement classes in Chiswick
MiW works with those with Parkinson’s, ME, MS, Arthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Dyspraxia, Early-stage Dementia, and Long COVID as well as those with general stiffness, balance, and joint problems. The class is taught by specially trained dance industry professionals and is done seated to musical accompaniment, and can be adapted to individual needs. Ballet4Life oversees these enriching programmes.
During the last two years, MiW developed an online programme in order to keep people moving and healthy at home. This runs concurrently with classes held in-person in Chiswick at St. Peter’s Parish Hall on Southfield Road, at the Musical Museum in Brentford for the Hounslow Seniors Trust, at St Mary’s Osterley, and at four different sheltered accommodation schemes in Hounslow as part of the London Borough of Hounslow Over 60’S Activities Programme.
The Thriving Communities Fund support will help deliver a MiW class for Over 60’s at the Hogarth Youth Centre on Duke’s Road, W4, during 2022. These classes will be open to public and commence on Tuesday 18 January, 2022, from 1.45pm – 2.45pm.
Due to the funding provided, this new class can be enjoyed for only £2 payable on the day on the door or by bank transfer. To register contact them on firstname.lastname@example.org.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.
However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.
