Make a real difference – become a RoSPA Fall Fighter
Falls are on the rise, and we need your help.
Falls are the single biggest cause of accidental injuries in the home, and sadly the largest cause of accidental death among over-65s in the UK.
Working together with our partner RSA Insurance Group, the Fall Fighter movement has been developed with the aim of creating a global fall fighting community.
Falls have a huge impact on people’s lives – from physical injuries and death, long-term health effects and disabilities to trauma and poor mental health, loss of mobility, loneliness, social isolation and loss of independence. Falls also impact hugely on society, costing the NHS and wider healthcare systems over £4billion every year.
But the good news is… this doesn’t have to be the case. By empowering people of all ages with the understanding of why falls happen, who they affect, and what they can do to prevent them, we can all help prevent falls from happening.
What is a Fall Fighter?
A Fall Fighter is somebody who has learnt about falls and how to prevent them. They use the knowledge and skills they’ve learnt in the free-to-attend awareness session to educate and inspire others in their community.
How do I take part?
Anyone can become a Fall Fighter! Simply complete a short free-to-attend awareness session and you will be provided with the information you need to make a real difference.
There are two simple routes to becoming a Fall Fighter:
- As an individual you can attend a short e-learning session or 20-minute virtual classroom at a time to suit you - why not encourage friends or colleagues to sign up too?
- Volunteers from organisations - workplaces, charities, community groups - can download a short self-led workshop to run with others, or download our SCORM compliant e-learning files to upload to your own e-learning system.
Once you have completed the session, you will be awarded a certificate and receive a digital toolkit to help you spread the word and inspire others.
Join the Fall Fighter movement today and help others live the life they deserve.
