Welcome to the October Monthly Round Up. We hope everyone had a spooktacular October. We are pleased to share the latest updates from age UK North Tyneside.  

πŸ’™The 1st of October was International Day of Older Persons, and the release of Ramblings. A poetry book by Helen Aitchison, an Age UK North Tyneside Trustee πŸ‘ It is an amazing read full of life and something for everyone to enjoy. Helen is kindly donating all profits to us here at Age UK North Tyneside. Grab your copy here.

πŸ’™We are also very excited to announce that we are proudly part of the Peggi App testing. Peggi allows older, isolated, or vulnerable people to enjoy the benefits and community of social media without the complexity of privacy or mainstream social media. Read more about Peggi here.

πŸ’™Age UK has released the Offline and Overlooked Campaign as well as Keep Warm in Winter Campaign. With these, Age UK North Tyneside is working towards reducing online signposting for older people as the default as well as informing our community how they can stay warm and well during the winter months.
