In 2011 the Institute was looking to provide an event focused on the elderly and isolated within our community. It was agreed that we would run a lunchtime event aimed at those in Care and Residential Homes, Sheltered Housing complexes and over 60's clubs. Initially it was thought we might attract 40 to 50 people but at its height we have seen over 240 people attend over two days. Working with network 50 plus the club is now used as a vehicle to inform older people of services and issues that can impact on their every day life. To date we have had the Expert Patient programme, Crime in the community, Swalec, the RSPCA and many more organisations give talks to the group and provide assistance on many issues.
