Research Impact: This study has deepened understanding of how all stakeholders experience community-based physical activity programmes. The findings of this study have informed the development of the Move for Life intervention which has been used as part of a feasibility and pilot trial recruiting over 700 adults aged 50 years and older in the West of Ireland. The findings of this qualitative study can be used to inform strategies for recruitment, sustainability and scalability of further complex interventions to promote physical activity.
