Older People Working for Older People

The Elders Council is a group of people who are interested in having a say about making Newcastle a great city in which to grow old. We do this in a variety of ways including peer research, arts projects and focus groups.  All of our work is done in partnership with local, regional or national organisations to improve the quality of life of older people.
