Welcome to the Elders Council Website

Special Feature

We have updated the Summary of our All Age Friendly City Centre report, based on the work we did with students from Newcastle University's Architecture, Planning and Landscape school over the Autumn.  The report is timely as we are anticipating that Newcastle City Council will start the consultation on Blackett Street in September.  If you have views to share, please get in touch as we would like to ensure that older people in the city have the opportunity to have their say.
