Action for Elders Celebrates

Our first ten years.

What a difference a decade makes. We celebrate our tenth anniversary on Monday February 21st and this year is set to be the busiest in our history. Action For Elders officially came into being on a rainy day back in February 2012 after many years of planning and an ethos to help those in later life.

Thinking Differently About Ageing

The story of Action for Elders is one that began with a reputation for innovation; of putting our plans to help older people into practice with Balanced Lives exercise and wellbeing programmes, an ability to adapt to changing times and circumstances. We faced unprecedented demand for our services, stretching our funding to the limit and came through a pandemic together with our participants stronger than before.

Balanced Lives Programmes

Over the past decade we introduced our award-winning Balanced Lives programmes, which started life as simple exercises for fall prevention and developed over time into a complete health and wellbeing package for the older community. And over this period, our ethos has always been to put people first with the aim of adding life to later life.

Through our work and its impact we have become not just catalysts but leaders driving forward the agenda for older people’s care.

CEO, Action for Elders

Serving The Community

We take great pride in engaging with and serving the local community with all of our many and varied programmes.

Putting People First

At Action For Elders we really do put the health and safety of the individual first. We give people the tools to take care of their own health in a safe and friendly environment, both outdoors, indoors or online. The three pillars of care: helping people with social, physical and mental health has remained constant throughout our first ten years.

Our Celebrations for 2022

2022 is set to be our busiest year yet with a wealth of new programmes, special events and social initiatives. See our events diary for more information.

Donate to help and inspire others

We will be telling the stories of inspiration through the lives of our participants and their loved ones. We found inspiration, emotionally charged stories of triumph through adversity and an overriding need to change the narrative about ageing from a negative to a positive one. Our Think Differently About Ageing campaign underlines our whole ethos.

So join us as we look back and go forward; follow our story here.
Donate to us and help add life to later life. This is our first ten years.
