The 1st of October is UK Older People’s Day and coincides with International Day of Older Persons. Get involved with UK Older People’s Day and help celebrate the achievements and contributions that older people make to our society and tackle negative attitudes and outdated stereotypes and support issues that affect their lives on a day to day basis.
Once again, the team has worked in partnership with the voluntary sector, community groups and other statutory and private organisations to put together and support a programme of fun activities, entertainment and information, but with a difference – the event will be delivered predominantly online this year to ensure that people are kept safe and social distancing measures are followed.
PFH has created a video about living in Retirement Living Plus Scheme apartments, which you can view here:
Older People’s Partnership Hull and East Riding Charity has coordinated a week-long celebration. This will include a programme of interactive activities that you can sign up to take part in, entertainment being shared across the charities Facebook and Twitter account which will include contributions from our areas older people showcasing their talents on video.
They will also be using social media accounts and the week to provide a platform for local and national organisations – which support the older people in the area to live a healthy and more independent life – to promote their services via virtual market place videos.
The Older People’s Partnership Hull & East Riding hopes as many people as possible access the programme this year, as we show that despite all that Coronavirus has thrown at us, we can still celebrate the contributions that older people are making to our local community and society.
So please join the celebrations and to build on the success of previous years events as we go virtual.
