One of the several projects and initiatives to improve the health and wellbeing of residents across the Braintree District that James leads on is Greenfield’s Chair-Based Exercise (CBE). CBE consists of 22 prescribed exercises led by one of James’ qualified volunteer CBE leaders.

It is particularly beneficial to frail people with chronic conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, dementia and osteoporosis; as well as those with mobility issues and mental health concerns. The programme is available free-of-charge to Greenfields residents and non-Greenfields residents over 18 years-old at selected venues.

James says:

“The programme is potentially life-changing for some as not only does it provide much needed exercise for mobility and strength but there are several great outcomes. These include needing less medical treatment, reducing falls and helping everyday activities.”
