Welcome to the website for the York Older People’s Assembly

For details of the Assembly and of events and information for older people, please click on the links on the menu above or the links below, alternatively contact us by post, telephone or email.

Our next Zoom meeting will be on Monday 19th April from 2 to 3pm.

Rachel Cruickshanks from the Foss Park mental hospital will be talking to us about Improving access to Psychological Therapies for older people. There has been much talk about the pressure on older people as a result of isolation and early dementure so this will be a chance to find out about the services available to help us.

Our aim is to keep the session to 1 hour so that there is no need for people to dash off for a break!

We are always open to suggestions for topics and or guest speakers – just send us an email.

Please email us at yorkolderpeoplesassembly@outlook.com if you want to join in and we will send you the Zoom invite link. It is also possible to dial in using an ordinary phone line – please let us know if you want to join in that way and we will supply details.

Our Spring Newsletter is being distributed – please contact us if you would like a hard copy or if you can pass some on to friends. The electronic version is available on the Newsletters page.

Don’t forget that Sunday 21st March is Census day – YCVS is providing help to those in need of support. A help line is available on 01904 621133 – select “Census Support”

If you know of anybody in need of help – even if it is just to have a phone chat, please let us know and we will try to help. Let’s look out for each other over the coming days.
