The Elders Council is involved in a wide range of activity from one-off focus groups and events through to peer research projects and regular working groups.
All our groups and activities are open to new members. Our sessions are informal and friendly and we do our best to make sure everyone who comes has the opportunity to contribute their ideas and experiences.
If you would like to join any of our activities and would like to find out more, please contact [email protected] or telephone 0191 208 2701 for further details.

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.
