Older Adults Services – ‘Ageing Well’

Getting older shouldn’t stop you enjoying life and through our Ageing Well programme for over 50s, we can help you do just that. Whether you’re looking to make new friends, touch up your creative skills or keep fit with a spot of exercise, we have something for you.

To keep everyone safe, all aspects of Ageing Well are currently delivered online. If you would like to get involved in our range of online activities, please contact Shantel at shantel.carty@bsettlement.org.ukWe also have an over 50s befriending telephone line set up, so if you or someone you know would benefit from a chat with our friendly Ageing Well caseworker, please get in touch with Adele on 07710 856 286.

Tai Chi

Art Classes – Currently closed due to COVID-19

Run by a volunteer who is a mature student currently completing her Degree in Art and the Ageing Well members themselves, these weekly sessions bring older people from the local community together to share their skills, creativity and love of art. Using different techniques and materials Ageing Well art sessions enable people of all abilities to let their creative streak out and learn how to perfect their artistic talents.
