Project ACE (Active, Connected and Engaged) is a theory-informed, pragmatic intervention using peer volunteering support to promote active ageing.
The ACE intervention was one of the outcomes of a 12–month collaborative network, AVONet, that used a range of approaches to identify best bet physical activity (PA) promotion strategies for older adults1. Thisstudy aimed to establish the feasibility and acceptability of the intervention.
•ACE is feasible and can help older people to get out and about more, improve their confidence and engage more with their community.
•Recruitment is an important area for improvement prior to a definitive pragmatic trial.
•ACE has already been adopted and delivered by LinkAGE –Bristol
