At Gateshead Older People's Assembly, everything we do is designed to help all Gateshead residents aged 50+ live healthy, active, and fulfilling lives. To make sure we're achieving our strategic aims and are working in the most effective and efficient ways possible, we regularly evaluate our work via the following methods:
Each year, we also track some basic statistics as they provide a good indication of our level of growth and progress in reaching as many of Gateshead's over 50s as possible. We have made tremendous progress over the past few years and are very pleased to have been in a position to offer older people opportunities to socialise, exercise, and learn throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
We were absolutely delighted to be recognised by the Foundation for Social Improvement as one of the first ten charities to win a national Small Charity BIG Impact Award in recognition of the impact of our work and our ability to measure it.
