Ageing with Style
October is the month during which older people worldwide stand proud and celebrate their achievements and the contributions they make to society.
Many organisations and groups do something special during October to celebrate older people in all their diversity, to demonstrate the very varied ways in which individuals, groups and society approach the challenges and opportunities of ageing.
There are a number of partners working together on Ageing with Style. These include the Arts Development, Communities and Carers Leads for the Council as well as:
Active Newcastle offer a range of activities with partners
Age UK Gateshead run ActivAge NEWCASTLE fitness and fun sessions
Independent Age, a national charity that has a regional team for Newcastle and the North East
Search, based in the West End of the City
Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums – run Slow Museums and special events
If you are planning an event in Newcastle, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org to add your event to our listing.
Why not look at what else is on offer and take the opportunity to try something different? The Elders Council would love to hear from you if you have tried something new for yourself or with your group. Write to them on email@example.com
Don’t forget that there is a wealth of activities out there for you to take part in throughout the year. Take a look at our Events section (search on older people) to see what’s on offer.
