What is Out and About?
How does it work?
What kind of activities can we help with?
Our Support Worker can help you find out about local & national services and support organisations and groups : perhaps you would like to take up a new hobby that’s always interested you, go out for a walk every now and then, or join a local social club.
Age UK Berkshire has our own range of activities that may interest anyone wanting to go out and meet people: Tai Chi, Archery, Zumba Gold, Yoga, computer courses, singing with our Choir and more.
There are lots of activities around Reading run by other groups and organisations that may suit you, or you might just want the chance to get together with friends for a cup of tea and a chat.
Who is eligible and how do we find out more?
Anyone can contact us for help: we take referrals from family members, carers, neighbours, local council & health professionals and other agencies, as long as the person being referred knows about it.
Out and About is a free, short-term service, open to anyone aged 50+ living in the Reading Borough Council area.
If you're interested in this service, or would like to volunteer with 'Out and About' or any of our other services for older people, please make contact.
