Neighbourhood services for older people

The Council’s Neighbourhood Services Team works directly with older people in their neighbourhoods to ensure they have opportunities to stay involved in community activities.

Social groups

The team has supported the development of a number of successful social groups which are now run by older people (with help from the team where needed) in:

  • Caversham Park Village
  • Amersham Road
  • Southcote and
  • Whitley Wood

More groups are planned. Visit this guide to find out more Things to do / Social clubs and activities


From time to time the team arranges Borough wide events for older people like Tea Dances and the “Older People’s Day” which celebrates the contribution older people make to our town.

Advice and support

The team can also offer information about other services available for older people and will provide individual support to help someone take the first step to get involved in their neighbourhood activities.
