13 people die every day as result of a fall,
4 million hospital bed per year due to falls.
Pauls Mills from the Falls Prevention Service said "Death, disability, loss of independence and fear can be avoided, the risk of falling can be reduced". As an extension of the Walking Stick MOT Project, we created a video that the community could easily understand. "Simple Things to reduce the risk of falls" video was created.
We wanted to translate words about health inequalities into actions. When we listened to the stories that people told us, it became clear that we needed a video to help people, reduce their risk of falling.
You can find the Urdu, Punjabi, Bengali. Arabic, Romanian and BSL version of the video HERE scroll to the bottom of the home page
