Activity groups for over-75s
Our activity groups bring together people aged 75 and over in local communities to help reduce loneliness, social isolation and improve physical wellbeing.
Our groups use community spaces to host a range of activities which can be anything from dancing to chair yoga, Tai Chi, light exercise classes, singing or boules.
Become an activity group coordinator
You will coordinate activity-based groups for people over 75 in community centres, pubs or church spaces. Groups will host between four and 15 activity guests, along with our volunteer drivers who pick up and drop off our activity guests.
Become an activity group volunteer
As an activity group lead volunteer, you’ll take turns leading the monthly session and support other volunteers when it’s their turn to lead.
Become an activity group driver
As an activity group driver, you’ll collect one or two older people each month from their homes so they can attend the activity group, and return them again afterwards.
