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@example.com or telephone 0191 208 2701 for further details.

Doorbells - Dreaming for the Future is a performance which raises questions about how and where we live in later life and how we might live more connected lives. The first performance was held in March and was very well received. The lively post-show discussion gave the audience the opportunity to explore their own views on later life.
Notes were taken of the discussions and analysed to start to draw out key issues for policy makers and practitioners.
This project is a partnership between Elders Council, Skimstone Arts and Northumbria University. We plan to deliver more performances in the future. See the full report under Housing in the Reports Section of the website.
A film version of the performance is available on http://skimstone.org.uk/film/ and here https://vimeo.com/289109651
