Adult Learning Courses

Open Age offers a number of adult community learning courses in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Unlike other Open Age classes, these are not drop-in sessions. You need to book in advance and commit to the duration of the course. If that sounds like something you might be interested in, we have a fantastic range of classes, such as:

·    Learn to use a computer
·    Master your smartphone or iPad
·    Improve your English
·    Learn a new language
·    Develop your writing 
·    Participate in art, dance and drama 
·    Read and enjoy poetry
·    Learn to relax, be happy, meditate

These are only a sample! All our courses are run in a friendly, supportive environment. They’re a great opportunity to make new friends and learn new skills.

Leaving a Gift in Your Will

Open Age is raising awareness of leaving a gift to charity in your will. Legacies are an important way to support Open Age, as they help us to plan so that we can be there in the future for older people who need us. As well as providing for your family, friends and other loved ones in your will, please do consider the possibility of leaving a gift to Open Age.
