Men’s Groups

Age UK North Tyneside’s Wallsend Men’s group has been a resounding success since it was started two years ago. This lively and friendly group for older men is driven by the participants who try new activities, explore the local area and keep active, while widening their social networks.

In response to demand, we have now started a similar group in Wideopen to allow older men in the North West of the borough to experience the same benefits. The group meets at fortnightly intervals in Wideopen Library, so if you are interested, why not come along and give it a try?

Integrated Care Volunteer

Integrated care volunteer
Our Integrated Care volunteering projects, consisting of Living Well, the North Tyneside Social Prescribing Service and the Age UK Hospital team, aim to help people to regain their confidence, improve their wellbeing and rebuild their social networks.
There are lots of different volunteering opportunities available within Integrated Care - how would you like to pop in for a cuppa and a chat with an older person who has recently been discharged from hospital, or help to run an activity in the community? Or would you prefer to work with an older person for up to three months to help them rebuild their social networks and regain their confidence? Our Volunteering team will be happy to discuss the roles further with you. Please contact them on 0191 280 8484 for an informal chat or click here to find out more.
