Gateshead Older People's Assembly is a charity offering opportunities for Gateshead residents aged 50+ to socialise, exercise, and learn.

In light of COVID-19, we have suspended all indoor activities until further notice.  We're still working, however, to ensure Gateshead's over 50s have opportunities to meet new people and maintain their health and independence.

Right now, we're partnering with Local TV to produce Keeping Well at Home with Gateshead Older People's Assembly, a daily television programme designed to help older people remain active in their own homes.  Keeping Well at Home is available on Freeview, Virgin Media, and Sky, so is easily accessible for those without access to the Internet. 

We are also offering FREE outdoor exercise classes for over 50s at our wellness hub in Deckham.  Classes include Dancercise, Keep Fit Strong & Steady, Strength & Balance, and Walking Football.  Booking is essential as spaces are limited. 


We are working to expand the number of opportunities older people have to socialise, exercise, and learn in Gateshead.  Here's how we're doing it:
