In the home
Open Age runs activities from the home for people living in RBKC and Westminster who are housebound and unable to access our activities in the community. We run facilitated group activities over the phone where callers can join a small, friendly group of people. Discussions range from current affairs to films, healthcare to quizzes. Activities are chosen by the group and facilitated by an Open Age staff member. All calls are free.
As well as social groups over the phone, Open Age also runs the following phone groups:
- A weekly creative writing group. Work done by this group can be found on our blog.
- A monthly book group in partnership with RBKC and Westminster Home Libraries Service
If you are housebound or know someone who is, and would like to find out more, please call Open Age on 020 8962 4141.
If you're interested in reading more about our phone groups, please see this article published in The Guardian.
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.
New Reed Centre!
We are delighted to be working in partnership with Octavia to deliver activities for older people at The Reed, a vibrant new community hub. For more information click here.
