Positive Ageing Week in association with

September 30th to October 4th 2019

Positive Ageing Week will take place from 30th September to October 4th 2019.
Many of us have been raised on the traditional notion of a three-stage approach to our working lives: education, followed by work and then retirement. The benefits of living longer and getting older are immense and they affect all parts of our lives; our finances, health and leisure. But because we’re so focussed on the negative things, we forget to enjoy the good things. Positive Ageing Week allows us to look at enjoying living longer and getting older.

Last year over 550 events took place across 25 counties. We are inviting individuals and groups to organise an activity or an event for PAW.

Events are organised by Active Retirement Groups; Nursing Homes; Community Resource Centres; Sports Partnerships; County Councils; Care Organisations; Libraries; Theatres, Galleries, Museums, Schools; Clubs, Societies and Associations for older people. In addition, businesses support the week by offering discounts for older people.
