Tackling Loneliness

Gateshead Older People's Assembly


Gateshead Older People's Assembly is a charity for over 50s, existing to improve the health and maintain the independence of their members.

The charity has been set up to support over 50s both mentally and physically through socialising, exercising and learning.


"Laughing, talking, good food, exercise and having good friends is a form of medicine, so the Older People's Assembly is a big medicine"


The People's Assembly is there for anyone who may be feeling lonely or may have even recently lost people who they were close to.

The 'Ladies Day' and 'Men's Group' offer the chance for people who are feeling lonely to get out and visit venues around Gateshead and a little further afield. This may involve having really great pub food with new friends or taking part in a yoga/pilates class.
