Chopwell & Rowlands Gill Live at Home Scheme

We are a community based project offering support services to older people who are socially isolated or unable to get out and about as they used to. Our services aim to relieve social isolation encourage older people to take an active part in the communities in which they live. We work within the West of the borough of Gateshead covering Rowlands Gill (including Highfield), High Spen and Chopwell. We run 19 groups across the region, including lunch clubs, exercise classes and a Mens' group. We offer a variety of activities including, fitness sessions, arts and crafts, plus speakers who can provide information on benefits and health. We also organise day trips to places of local interest, these are very popular. Additionally we deliver a one to one volunteer  befriending service to those who cannot leave their homes. All our work is supported by a dedicated team of trained staff and volunteers.
