At Elders Voice we believe older adults should have access to a range of affordable activities, that contribute towards their physical and emotional wellbeing. That’s why we’ve created a Wellbeing Programme for over-55s in Brent, that includes a variety of fitness, educational and social activities. If you would like to take part in one of the activities listed below, please contact Bridget Keating, Wellbeing Administrator on 0208 206 7503. We are also open to suggestions, so if you can’t find an activity that interests you, give us an idea of what might.
