Our sessions are all about community connections for the over 50s of South Tyneside. They bring people together, help maintain social connections, reduce isolation and can improve health and mental wellbeing. As well as the regular sessions, shown below, we have many one-off activities (e.g. Coach Trips) and short courses (e.g. Digital Inclusion classes) provided throughout the year. Notifications and details of these activities/courses will be put on our noticeboard and on our facebook page.
Before you first attend a session please contact us for booking
and to receive the current information regarding the session.
call: 0191 456 6903 and ask for the Community Development Team
or email (with Subject: Activities) Community Development Team.
