Age Well

Our age well programme of work helps older people feel more connected with their community. Our work is part of the wider Salford City commitment to ensuring our older residents can live health happy lives in their own homes for as long as they chose and access support close to home when they need it.

Green and Growing

As well as our general volunteering opportunities our older residents run their own green and growing project at Sports Village. The project works with the nursery to encourage sharing of skills across the generations. The children also get the chance to try new things such as growing and tasting vegetables.

Sharing lunches

Our monthly sharing lunches are an opportunity for old and young to come together and share food.  The lunches take place at Sports Village and the children from the nursery can often be seen eating with our older residents.  The lunch often has a learning element to enable older people to look after their own health and wellbeing.

Tech and Tea

We currently deliver Tech and Tea at Salford Sports Village for local residents aged 65+ years. This is a five week course designed to give people who have never touched a computer before some basic digital skills, including turning devices on and off safely, installing and using apps, and Google searching to solve problems.

We also offer follow up support to people who have completed a Tech and Tea course at a monthly drop-in at the Salford Sports Village.

To book a place, please speak to the librarian at the Sports Village or contact Matt on 0161 743 3625.
