A hundred different things – Silver Sunday and People First

People first logo

 

Silver Sunday is a day of fun and free activities for older people which celebrates the value and knowledge they contribute to our communities. Loneliness and isolation is an increasing problem and the day also aims to draw those at risk into the community for a fun, stimulating day out, meeting new people.

“If you don’t have anywhere to go you tend to think ‘I can’t be bothered to go out’ and get stuck indoors”

Visit the Silver Sunday page on People First to see what’s going on and let residents know about some of the huge range of activities on offer – there are over 100 across the 3 boroughs. Some will take place next week as well – it’s not just Sunday!

“The majority of people who attended had not engaged with us before. I spoke to at least two people who said they never leave the house”
