Our Programmes

We offer all that you see on this website but behind the scenes we are working on four separate initiatives designed to increase our social impact:

For Individuals:

The Triple Challenge + The All in One

The Triple Challenge (for those aged 25 – 54) and The All in One (for those aged 55+) are challenge programmes inspired by The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and call for achievements in Physical Activity, Learning and Social Contribution.

By taking part you will challenge your mind, body and social conscience. You will learn a new skill, take on a new physical challenge, make a contribution and feel fulfilled.

For Employers:

Bridge to Retirement

Research shows that losing the structure and routine of the workplace through retirement or redundancy can trigger a very difficult period of readjustment for many. We invite employers to play their part in addressing this social issue for their retirees.

For Communities:

The Charities Challenge™

Design your own challenge to achieve your own social outcomes and run it through us. Age is not relevant. Inter-generational is great.

For Organisations:

Corporate Challenges

Challenges – as a catalyst for positive activity – are under-utilised and can so easily be used for developing skills, building a sense of community, increasing motivation / productivity or for staff retention.

So we have developed a system of subsites – integrated into The Challenge Hub’s own website – off which any organisation or community group can design and operate any number of its own challenges. 

For conscientious employers we have off-the-peg challenges – (a) “Mental Wellbeing at Work” (such an important issue now) and (b) “Live Longer Better” (for older employees with their changing motivations) – which those employers might adopt or adapt for their platform. Both are science and research-based.

Anyone registering for a corporate challenge is automatically registering also as a Member of The Challenge Hub. We have over 2,000 Members who are encouraged to upload and share their own physical activity, learning and social contribution experiences. By doing so they inform, encourage and inspire others to see what’s possible – which is what The Challenge Hub is here to achieve.

Generations Together

Do you organise events where you would like us to encourage older people to take part?  Are you involved with younger people who might benefit from engagement with over-55s? If so why not contact us.

Social Prescribing

Social prescription is an initiative whereby patients are referred by their GPs to Link Workers in preference to a medical prescription. Those Link Workers are trained to place the patient into situations which address the underlying causes of their condition. The Challenge Hub can assist (a) as a resource for those Link Workers and (b) as a support and motivator for the patients themselves.

Are you involved in delivering on social prescription? If you think we might be able to help you then contact us.
