The Elders Council of Newcastle office is currently closed. We are working from home and we will be responding to telephone messages and emails regularly. All Elders Council face to face meetings, events and the IT drop-in at Northumbria University have been cancelled.
We will continue to send out information in our regular e-bulletin and on our Facebook page. Keep checking these as people are sending us very imaginative ideas of how to get practical support and how to occupy your time with interesting and creative activities.
If you have good ideas which you would like to share with others or requests for information please email us on [email protected] and we will do our best to share these and respond to you.
If you have friends, family or neighbours who are not on-line and would benefit from the information we are sharing, please pass it on!
Although most older people’s organisations are now closing their offices and their face-to-face activities, people are still working from home trying to stay in touch with people on the telephone or via email.
We encourage you to follow the guidance from Newcastle City Council www.newcastle.gov.uk/coronavirus or the Government on https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response which will be updated regularly.
We wish you all well.
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.
