Silver Sunday is a special day in the national calendar when everyone can come together to celebrate older people

A day in the nation’s hearts where older people feel valued and are given new opportunities to get out of the house, keep their minds and bodies active, learn new skills, make new friends and connect with the communities and generations around them.

Everyone is welcome.

We would like to invite all Contact the Elderly (now Re-engage) groups to celebrate Silver Sunday again this October, welcoming older people in your communities for a day of fun, friendship and activities.

Your celebrations can be as simple or creative as you wish and we encourage you to visit our website to be inspired by the thousands of activities from previous years and those already on our 2019 map.

What can you do, brew, bake or make to create a very special Silver Sunday celebration this year?
