A charity is holding events throughout Birmingham to fight isolation within the elderly community.
Throughout the week Ageing Together will be holding activities including arts and crafts, dancing lessons, places for people to chat over food and drink and also life skills activities such as first aid training, English classes and more across Birmingham.
A representative from Ageing Together said:
“It’s really about people coming together, talking to one another, working out what they’ve got in common and it’s particularly important at a time where we really need to address community coherence and the general social infrastructure of Birmingham to make the city better.”
