Be Active Life Long (B.A.L.L.) Groups

Moray has a network of BALL groups that promote healthy and active ageing within local communities through gentle exercise, hosting activities and speakers and coffee and chat. 

Come along to find out for yourself what BALL is all about. Please see the list of venues below.

Promoting Health and Well-being for over 60s

Ball groups have proven popular in Moray and there are currently 18 groups operating in towns and villages across the area.  Moray Council’s Community Care supports the development of the BALL groups through the deployment of the development team. BALL groups are part of a network of community groups supporting older people in Moray to live healthier, sustainable and independent lives in their own communities.  

Older people want to remain active in their communities and the benefits are:

  • Being part of the community
  • Company
  • Choice
  • Being valued
  • Advice & information

The BALL projects objectives are:

  • To provide opportunities and choice for older adults in Moray
  • Improve confidence, self-esteem and mental health
  • To engage older people in the planning & running of their groups
  • To improve quality of life by increased mobility, lessening the risk of falling
  • Improve physical health in general
  • To foster companionship
  • To develop sustainable programmes by supporting people to become self sufficient
