Staying safe from trips and falls

We’re working with partners in the health and community sector to help older people stay independent and avoid trips and falls.

We know falling over isn’t part of the ageing process, and a lot of falls can be prevented. We want to help you stay on your feet living the life you want to.

Falls and fracture prevention programmes are available throughout New Zealand. Find out what’s happening in your local community:
