This event will be an opportunity to bring stakeholders together to look at ways of working around themes of community cohesion, co-production and supporting the needs of veterans aged 50+. We hope to use this to event to generate discussions to develop ideas and future activities as part of the Ambition for Ageing programme in Rochdale.

We will be having a presentation from a group called ‘ Southern Voices ’ who will be curating a piece around the involvement of different cultures during the First World War. We will also be having a number of speakers, who will share their experiences of serving in the Armed Forces.

Food will be provided as well as a round table discussion so we can get together to shape and design activities that meet the needs of those over 50.

We look forward to an evening of celebration and a chance to bring all communities together.
