We provide opportunities for older people within the community to take part in leisure activities. This may include cultural, sporting and other organised social activities.
What the service is for
We, like the rest of Britain, have an ageing population profile. Government forecasts predict an increase in the over-65 age range of 53% by 2021. We have focused on 6 aims for older people in the community plan 2016 and also on wider national issues affecting the age group.
The 6 aims for older people in the plan are:
- increase involvement
- improve advice and support
- reduce discrimination
- promote independent living
- more care places
- better transport options.
We welcome suggestions to improve the existing services and range of activities that we offer. If you would like more information on recreation opportunities within the Cherwell District please contact community recreation (see contacts to the right).
The service is available to anyone over the age of 50.
