I am evaluating the project as an employee of the University of Portsmouth. It is a 3 year project to develop a range of outdoor activity projects along the coast and in parks for inactive Grandparents aged 55+ to get active with their family and friends. The project will identify best practice in intergenerational delivery for these audiences and test the effectiveness of reaching older people through family influencers and the use of non traditional settings and programmes.


The overarching project outcome measured through the primary Key Performance Indicator (KPI) is to work with 1500 people aged 55+ who will be supported to meet KPI 2 (moving over the 30 minute MIE physical activity threshold per week and staying active)
