Annula Report and Development Plan
There is plenty to read in the Reports section of our website this month. To find out what we have been doing over the past year, read our Annual Report 2018-19. The Elders Council Board is not letting the grass grow under its feet. It has been working on a development plan to take the organisation into the future.
Our Mission is to work for the city’s older people so that they may live a respected, fulfilled later life. To do this, we need to reach out to more older people and their families. We do this in a variety of ways including our quarterly Magazine, fortnightly e bulletin, Older Voices radio programme and our monthly social get-together at the Mile Castle. We are refreshing our communications with the intention of appealing to more people – do you like the new look of our Magazine?
We would also like to increase our networks and partnerships with other organisations so that we are working with others to improve the quality of life of older people in the city.
The work of the Elders Council is delivered by its members. If you have a few hours to spare and would like to get involved, please contact us! It’s not all hard work – it’s also fun and friendships and lots of interesting things to do!
The Elders Council is a group of people who are interested in having a say about how to make Newcastle a great city in which to grow old. We do this in a variety of ways - peer research, arts projects, focus groups and regular meetings with service providers and policymakers.
On Friday 19th July 10.30am – 12.30pm at the Campus for Ageing and Vitality, Elders Council is delighted to welcome representatives from Tolent and Newcastle City Council talking about their Newcastle Annuity Project which is building 148 new homes for older people in the West End. If you would like to come please contact: [email protected] or call 0191 208 2701.
It has taken us a while to arrange a convenient date with Tolent, so I do hope you will be able to support this event and promote it to others who may be interested in older people’s housing.
