Set up over twenty years ago, the Network’s original objective was to create opportunities for older people to lead more active, stimulating and rewarding lives-and it has certainly succeeded in this.
Today,more than sixty Groups are affiliated to it, spread throughout Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray,with a membership of over a thousand and is open to all 50+ Groups and Organizations in the North East on payment of a small fee.
Run by a committee of Volunteers, the Network is a registered Scottish Charity which promotes good links between groups and sharing ideas and experiences for the benefit of its members.
The aims of the Network are :
- to develop educational and recreational opportunities
- to organise themed events
- to provide training
- to support special projects.
