About Us

 

 

Our Vision

We look forward to the day when there is an abundance of church based community groups for older people across the UK where a wide range of needs are being met - physical, social, spiritual, emotional and cognitive; where at least one member has the knowledge, confidence and skills required to provide a range of activities that will enrich the lives older people in their church and local community, thereby improving health, quality of life and feelings of self worth. 

We will seek to realise this vision by:

  setting up and running high quality, community based Younger 4 Longer groups

  assisting others to set up and run similar programmes by offering good quality, evidence based, accredited training which provides the knowledge, skills, confidence and competence required to deliver this much needed service

Our Mission

We are passionate in our desire to promote the overall health, well-being and quality of life of older people in our communities.   We believe that by working together, we will be able to guarantee easy access to opportunities that will help to maintain health, strength and independence, enhance feelings of self worth and enrich the lives of countless people, thereby ensuring that no person is forced to live a lonely, isolated life which is devoid of meaningful relationships.
