Celebrate 'Older people's day' this October 1st

NHS South Lincolnshire CCG is raising awareness of UK Older People's Day this October by celebrating the achievements and contributions that older people make to our society and the economy. UK Older People’s Day was created to challenge negative attitudes and outdated stereotypes.

This year’s UK Older People’s Day is about sharing skills and experience amongst all generations. Events will be taking place across the county, visit the campaign twitter page @OlderPeoplesDay to find out what's happening near you. Are you organising or helping out at an event?

The celebrations and activities also promote healthy lifestyles, give opportunities to combat loneliness, and encourage volunteering. So pledge to join your nearby ‘Big Skill Share’ today!
