Older People's Clubs
List of older people's clubs in the Chesterfield, Bolsover and North East Derbyshire District Council Areas.
At Age Concern Chesterfield and District we keep a
database of clubs for older people and have a volunteer run introduction service for people who may feel a bit awkward about contacting groups themselves directly.
This list is updated regularly and is available to view by clicking HERE.
Recently we have been saddened to hear of several older peoples groups closing. At this time when there is an increasing number of isolated older people and cut backs in many services - the need for social and activity groups for the 55+ age group has never been higher. Age Concern Chesterfield and District are keen to do what we can to help groups continue into the future, but first we need to know more about the issues facing groups and the people that run them.
We have been fortunate in gaining funding for this project from North Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group and the Duke of Devonshires Charity.
As a first step in the project we will be sending out questionnaires to gain a more informed view of the issues facing older peoples groups. The information gained will then be used to develop support for groups experiencing difficulties and to highlight examples of best practice for groups who are doing well.
If you receive one of our questionnaires please help us by completing and returning it. They will be posted out very soon, or you may have already received one. The questionnaire will also be available on line from 7th February (Click here) so that you can complete and return by email.
We would really appreciate your participation in this project so that we can ensure older peoples clubs and groups continue to meet community need for many years to come.
Everyone at Age Concern Chesterfield and District
