Time & Talents offers a great variety of fun, interesting activities for all ages, including many groups created specially for people in later life.

From keep-fit and arts and crafts, to health advice, T&T members keep exploring and trying new things throughout their lives! We run several groups that give people the chance to get together over a shared interest, including Snap & Chat, our older men’s walking and photography group, or our Friday Social, which members describe as a ‘youth club for grown-ups’. Meanwhile, Rainbow Arts is perfect if you want to get creative, and Strength and Balance helps keep away the aches and pains.

For older people with higher levels of need, we run a range of more supported activities, such as our Stroke Club (for people who have experienced a stroke, along with their carers) our VIPs group (for Visually Impaired Persons), and our Happy Mondays group for older people who are frailer and need additional help to get out and meet people. Many of these activities can include minibus transport and a light lunch.

Don’t forget – we know that you’re only as old as you feel, and all of our community activities for adults are open to people of all ages!
