Forging Positive Community Connections for the over 50’s

The Hub Ageing Together Social Project has always recognised that is important to combine community development with a regular programme of informal and fun activities which bring older people into contact with each other. We hope by engaging with people they have the opportunity to share ideas interests and skills with others.

Our diverse programme of social and leisure activities has continued to help older people to overcome feelings of isolation and vulnerability with some of our participants becoming the key organisers at making the activities run well. Whilst the Hub Ageing Together Social Project continues to support participants within the local area of Brandwood/ Kings Heath and Stirchley area.
