Older People’s Week celebrations

Older People’s Week celebrations

The 1st of October is UK Older Peoples 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celebrate the achievements and contributions that older people make to our society and tackle negative attitudes and outdated stereotypes and support issues that affect their lives on a day to day basis.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, Older People’s Partnership 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 event.

Older People’s Partnership Hull and East Riding Charity are hosting the week-long celebration. The events will include a series of activities and entertainment to celebrate and showcase the contributions that older people are making to our local community and society today and the positive impact that cultural activities can have on health and wellbeing, reducing loneliness and isolation in our aging population.

The Partnership hopes from the event to provide a platform for local and national organisations from the voluntary/community/private and public sector, which can support the older people in and around Hull to live a healthy and more independent life, also have information of services that they can access to provide support should they need it.

The Older People’s Partnership Hull & East Riding would like as many people as possible to join in the celebrations and to build on the success of previous years events.

Everyone welcome, so please come and visit us throughout the week.
