The safety of our staff and participants on Challenge Age is paramount. Staying safe is important for all of us. We have devised the Challenge Age programme so that direct tuition with your tutor is online using online meeting technologies and an online learning platform. Our aim is to reduce social contact but increase your connectedness using technology. However, as part of the programme we do undertake outdoor activities such as walking and cycling in small groups and we will undertake a risk assessment for each activity. Before you commence any physical activities, you will be required to complete a health declaration form. If you unsure about undertaking any physical activity you must contact your GP before commencing.  You are required to prepare properly and have the correct equipment to ensure your safety and well-being. We do not require the use of masks in outdoor activities however you should practice social distancing and regularly sanitise your hands.
