Payment must be made before the first session.

All previous attendees of these groups have been written to informing them of the start date and changes that have been bought in.

The Community Development team are excited to see the groups return and wishes to welcome everyone back safely and into an environment in which all participants feel comfortable and confident. So in conjunction with the Governments roadmap, and working with our team of instructors, volunteers and venues, we have bought in some new safety controls and alterations. This is to safeguard everyone’s health, safety and wellbeing, which will ensure the longevity of the programme going forward.

We hope to continue to roll out our programme of social and physical groups and activities face to face over the coming months.

If you have any questions please contact the Community Development team on 0191 2877012 or email community.development@ageuknorthtyneside.org.uk
