Active & Connected Elders Project


Our award-winning Elders Project aims to improve the health and wellbeing of local older people by “adding years to life and life to years”. We deliver a wide range of social groups, exercise classes, educational activities and support services which are accessed by over 400 elders each week.

This short video shows the project in action and heart-warming user testimonies:

Our current programme of activities for Over 50s includes:

In addition to these regular activities, we also offer the following services:

  • We organise a range of exciting outings and holidays throughout the year, for example: boat rides, visits to garden centres, seaside day trips and short breaks to the Isle of Wight and Eastbourne. Speak to Michelle about upcoming trips.


  • Our experienced and compassionate Elders Advocacy Manager provides free 1-2-1 advice appointments for any local elders who are experiencing problems with issues such as: social care, finance, housing, bereavement or transport problems. To book a meeting, please call 0208 586 7070 ext. 209.
