The Older and Wiser Show

The Older and Wiser Show is a partnership between Age Friendly Island and Vectis Radio. Its aim is to inform islanders about projects and initiatives taking place across the Island that enhance the lives of older residents.

This project is part of the Age Friendly Island partnership. Age Friendly Island is part of Ageing Better, a programme set up by The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK. Ageing Better aims to develop creative ways for older people to be actively involved in their local communities, helping to combat social isolation and loneliness. It is one of five major programmes set up by The National Lottery Community Fund to test and learn from new approaches to designing services which aim to make people’s lives healthier and happier.
