This group meets about six times per year and has a programme of work on assessing older person friendly environments.
Using a checklist based on members views on what is important to older people, members of the working group have carried out systematic assessments of Newcastle City Centre, Parks and Recreation Areas and Supermarkets. In 2013 the group carried out assessments of the District Centres in Newcastle. Copies of the reports are available in the Publications section as well as listed below.
If you would like to join the working group, contact the Co-ordinator, [email protected] or telephone 0191 235 9905.
Keeping up our IT skills can be a bit of a challenge when we are no longer in the workplace where colleagues can help or family members and friends with the time to show you how to use that great app! But help is at hand from students at Northumbria University who run a regular fortnightly IT drop-in session in Room 107, Squires Building, 2 Sandyford Road, NE1 8SB.
However, big or small the problem you want to solve, call in for help. You will receive one-to-one support as well as having the opportunity for interesting conversations with students studying in Newcastle. The sessions are popular, so to book a place please call 0191 208 2701 or email [email protected]
