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 [email protected] or call 2082701.

Tolent Presentation

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.
