Welcome to the Elders Council Website

Special Feature

Did you know that our radio show, Older Voices, is now broadcasting twice a month on the first and third Friday of the month between 2.00 - 4.00 pm on Nova Radio on 102.5FM?  Our programme is packed full of interesting interviews including our regular slots on gardening from Susan and green issues from Sandy, and lots, lots more.   It's easy to find on-line if you use (which enables you to access radio stations all over the world!).  If you miss a programme, you can also listen again on the Later Life Audio and Radio Network
