Event description

Description

Definition of Assembly

What do we want to achieve?

We want...

  • people in later life to be actively engaged in making positive change happen.

  • local people to be informing local and national campaigns, consultations and decisions.

  • to facilitate people being involved in activism and co-production of services that impact on later life experiences.

  • to support a programme of local activism, building on the strength, knowledge, skills, and influence of individuals and groups.


What is a ‘Later Life Assembly’?

We want to provide the opportunity for people to meet, share some food together and learn about how they can make a positive change for themselves and other people in later life.

We will use the gatherings to inform individuals about the campaigns that national Age UK is running and help people to get involved.

We will also support local activities on local issues. This could be as simple as signing a petition, sharing a social media post or writing a letter, right up to meeting with decision-makers to try and encourage them to consider older people more carefully.

Ultimately, providing we can find funding and/or sponsorship to support them, we have an ambition to set up a ‘Later Life Assembly’ across Cheshire.


When will each ‘Later Life Assembly’ meet?

We held our first ‘Later Life Assembly’ on 29th May, 2019, in Chester. At this meeting, the Assembly agreed that Transport is something that they felt passionately about and wanted to make a positive change to.


What is the focus of this 'Later Life Assembly'?

The focus of our 'Later Life Assembly' on 11th October 2019 will be on Transport and older people from across Cheshire are invited to join us in building a campaign on improving transport for older people locally.

This 'Later Life Assembly' event will begin at 11:00am and will finish at 2:00pm - a light lunch will be provided.

At the event, we will draw together a panel of speakers to share their thoughts on how accessible transport can have a positive impact on people in later life.

We will then work together to identify some positive actions that we can take collectively to improve it for people across Cheshire.

We hope that this is an exciting programme that will result in real change.

This event has been kindly sponsored by Gifford Lea.

"Gifford Lea is proud to host and support Age UK Cheshire’s Later Life Assembly, which is encouraging people in later life to be actively engaged in making positive change happen.

These gatherings are a great way for our residents and the local community to come together, share food and learn about how they can make a positive change for themselves and other people in later life, as well as have a say in the campaigns that Age UK Cheshire is running.

We look forward to supporting the Later Life Assembly and working alongside Age UK Cheshire in the future."
