Older People

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:

Due to the coronavirus crisis, both of Time & Talents’ venues are closed. However, our staff are still very much at work whilst working remotely. We are in regular telephone contact with hundreds of local people who usually come to T&T activities/groups, and are responding to urgent need wherever we can with our amazing existing volunteer team.

We’ve also been delighted at the volume of new volunteering applications we’re getting and we welcome more to apply here:

Staff are working as fast as they can to process these applications and then make hundreds of phone befriending matches, to keep our community connected and battle the isolation that this crisis is creating for many of us. Please visit our website News page for updates and call the team on 020 7231 7845 if you need us.

Best wishes
