Following on from their 2015 events, Outside the Box are hosting new “We’re Here Too” events for older people, including one on Tuesday 15th November, 10am – 3:30pm at the Forth Valley Sensory Centre, Camelon. They have also released the Falkirk event programme, available to view or download.
“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.
These events 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 events.
