“We’re Here Too” 2016 Events for Older People

November 15, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

Free

Following on from their 2015 events, Outside the Box are hosting a new “We’re Here Too” event for older people on Tuesday 15th November, 10am – 3:30pm at the Forth Valley Sensory Centre, Camelon.

“We’re Here Too” aims to bring together people (including older people themselves) who want to see more opportunities where all older people are able to participate in the issues that interest them.  They want to tackle social isolation and help prevent older people from feeling as though they are no longer part of their community, and that their views don’t matter.

This event will focus on three themes:

  • building stronger links between people living in care homes and other supported settings, and people in their local communities
  • keeping active
  • what works for older people in Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) communities

Tea, coffee, cake and lunch will be provided at the event.

To book your place at an event, please contact Alice Charlton by phone:  0141 419 0451, or email: alice.otb@outlook.com
