Older Person Friendly City Group

This group meets about six times per year and has a programme of work on assessing older person friendly environments.

Using a checklist based on members views on what is important to older people, members of the working group have carried out systematic assessments of Newcastle City Centre, Parks and Recreation Areas and Supermarkets. In 2013 the group carried out assessments of the District Centres in Newcastle.  Copies of the reports are available in the Publications section as well as listed below.

If you would like to join the working group, contact the Co-ordinator, [email protected] or telephone 0191 235 9905.

So we know you will never be old, but just in case can we talk about it?

Do you want to use your time differently? Are you looking for ways to manage changes in your life? Would you like to get more involved in your local community? If you can answer ‘yes’ to any of these questions, our Active Voices course is just the thing for you. In a series of informal sessions, you will have the opportunity to explore these questions with others. People who have taken part in previous courses have really enjoyed them and reported that they feel more confident about taking up new opportunities. The course will run for 6 weeks starting on Thursday 7th March 10.30 am – 2.00 pm (light lunch included). And it’s FREE! To book your place, contact [email protected] or call 0191 208 2701.
