As older people we have a lifetime of experience. We believe that all older people have something to offer no matter what their age or situation and that these gifts and resources can and should be used for the benefit of everyone.  Together we can make Newcastle an Age Friendly City!

We are The Elders Council of Newcastle:  

We connect – by meeting and listening to other older people and providing good quality, accessible information

We activate – we hold events and focus groups where older voices will be heard.  We participate in research and develop creative projects that reach out to all parts of the community. 

We influence– our members get involved in representation, partnership working, networking and decision making.
