Want to talk to like-minded people online? Why not go and chat on Gransnet?
Age UK is working with Gransnet to create some great opportunities for older people to meet online, exchange knowledge, experience and swap stories.
Gransnet is the social networking site for Britain's 14 million grandparents. It was launched in May 2011 and its forums cover news, culture, health, relationships, learning, food, gardening, memories and more.
Discussions range from ageism in the NHS to coping with daughters-in-law; from childhood sweets and games to recovering from betrayal; from what the government should do about social care to the joys of winter.
The specially-hosted Age UK forums on Gransnet are like an extra arm of the site. They're a place to meet like-minded people, exchange views and swap experiences and stories.
You'll need to register as a Gransnet member to post messages on the forums, but after that you can talk about whatever you like.
Age UK and Gransnet share the common ambition of bringing older people together.
Age UK is working with Gransnet to create opportunities to chat to like-minded souls online. So if you want to swap stories, share knowledge or just have a chinwag, we think Gransnet is a great place to start.
