Older People

Due to the Covid-19 crisis, all our face to face activities across T&T’s venues are closed until further notice. Staff are working remotely supporting our community with the help of our amazing local volunteers. We are preparing both physical and online resource packs, and there will be some opportunities to join online groups as well. For more information please visit our website News page, call 020 7231 7845 or email info@timeandtalents.org.uk

From reminiscence to keep fit, arts and crafts to health advice, T&T members keep exploring and trying new things throughout their whole lives! We run targeted groups for older adults, such as our stroke club or visually impaired group, bringing housebound people from home in the T&T minibus, and include a healthy, light meal, as well as offering a wealth of new and unusual experiences.

It’s easy to end up with not much to do and nowhere to go as you get older, especially for men. Some of us just find we don’t socialise as much as we used to. So we decided to do something about it. We run several groups where people can get together over a shared interest such as Snap & Chat, our older men’s walking and photography group, or the Friday Social, which is pretty much a youth club for older people, where people get to decide which activities they’d like to do.

Here are our weekly activities – click on each one to find out more info:

COVID-19 UPDATE

**WE REGRET THAT BOTH T&T VENUES

CONTINUE TO BE SHUTTERED**

 

 

Following Government guidelines, we are unable to provide our usual face to face services and activities or to provide drop-in on to one support.  The safety and wellbeing of our employees, volunteers and service users remain our priority and we continue to reduce risk of transmission and ensure that unnecessary risks are not taken. This means that members of the public are not allowed to enter the Old Mortuary building or use the toilet.

We know that this is a hugely difficult time for our community, and we continue to do everything in our power to support our users and wider community.
