Silver Active is a free weekly programme of activities for over 55s in Haringey. Over 55s living in neighbouring boroughs are also welcome to join in the fun.

Silver Active is funded by Comic Relief’s Sport for Social Change fund and delivered by Groundwork London in partnership with Homes for Haringey.

Our joint aspiration is for sheltered housing schemes to become wellbeing hubs and provide fun opportunities for older residents to come together, socialise and contribute towards an active and healthy lifestyle in older age.

The programme changes every season so participants will get a chance to try out different activities depending on their interests. We update this timetable regularly!


Timetable

In light of social distancing measures we are currently offering all our activities online (on Zoom) as well as ‘Tea and Chat’ over the phone.
