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 firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0191 208 2701 for further details.

Elders Council Board Member Halina has been putting the Elders Council on the map with the Great Exhibition of the North. Having signed up as a volunteer, she has taken the opportunity to promote the Elders Council. Halina arranged for the EC Radio Programme to run a feature on the Great North Exhibition on its June programme, and secured interviews with a number of key people including Carol Bell, Executive Director of the NewcastleGateshead Initiative and Sarah Munro, Director of the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art. The photo shows Halina in action recording her interview with Sarah Munro.
Elders Council is also a partner in Future Homes which will feature as part of the Great Exhibition of the North with a virtual reality tour of a future home at the Core on Helix (formerly Science Central) on Bath Lane. Don't miss it.
