GrumbleSmiles is a Charitable Trust whose primary aim is to develop new solutions to social isolation amongst older people. The objective of our new project is to establish a social network within Coventry that will enable members to connect and help each other to become involved in events and activities.
In conjunction with Coventry University’s Age Research Centre, GrumbleSmiles is seeking to find a number of older people in Coventry who would like to be involved in the development of this project. Our hope is that this will enable Coventry to become a more Age Friendly City.
We want the event to be a sociable occasion which gives the participants the opportunity to meet other older people. From this we hope to get a better understanding of older people’s experience of living in Coventry. The first meeting took place on Friday 24th May 2013 at the Welcome Centre adjacent to the Coventry University Technology Park.
Below are some photographs of the event and later posts will discuss the results of the first survey.
