GATE Activity Survey Report

 

In 2013, an review of the activity and participants’ satisfaction with the GATE Project was undertaken. The report looked at the activity levels of GATE service users and measured their levels of confidence in undertaking any kind of physical activity. The report found that there was a high level of satifaction with the GATE Project and that participants reported that they felt very confident in undertaking any physical activity – which is an indicator showing that participation in the GATE project has reduced the fear of falling.
