We believe that older people are not valued enough in this society and this affects both the mental and physical health of people as they age. Also, younger people are cut off from a rich resource of experience. Elderventure aims to help older people to value themselves and to support them in the process of getting older (and wiser!)
We operate collaboratively, hold regular group meetings and organise workshops on collaborative society and the art of mentoring. Since we started, we have been asked to enable and facilitate various intergenerational projects in Frome and a role is emerging of helping different voluntary organisations to work together to create a joined-up society.
Anyone is welcome to come along. Please subscribe to our mailing list if you are interested in receiving our newsletters or coming to meetings and events.
