As satellites of Halton OPEN, our participation groups enable older people to take part in social activities, be consulted about local issues and improve services delivered in Halton.

This service is available in:

The groups have a dual purpose as isolated older people have the opportunity to get involved, get out of their home, meet new people and become re-engaged with their community. There are coffee mornings and community groups offering a chance to take part in arts and crafts activities. Guest speakers are also invited in from other organisations. Additionally, occassional outings take place from time to time.
