Action For Elders aims to build a world alongside older people and others that enriches later life. We deal directly with the challenges of ageing-particularly poor health and loneliness. We work to enhance the wellbeing of older citizens ,bringing respect ,dignity and confidence into their lives and helping them to live with as much independence as possible. Through our work there will be less isolation, visits to GP surgeries and hospitals will be reduced, falls will lessen and mobility will improve, friends will be made, new skills will be learnt and later life will become a stage of life not to be feared but to be welcomed

What makes Action for Elders different
We improve the later life of our elder citizens creating opportunities and changing attitudes so that they make the most of later life and realise that achievements are not in the past but can still be realised on a daily basis. “ I have learnt through this programme that I am not old ,just older and like a nice wine I am maturing with age"
