Engage with Age runs health improvement programmes in East and South Belfast.
Supported by the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust and the Public Health
Agency, these programmes seek to empower older people to improve their own
physical and mental health, learn new skills, be active in the community, and benefit
from services such as falls and accident prevention.

This programme works mostly through older people’s groups. If you are involved
with a group that would like to become involved please contact either Cathy or Anna.

If you are an individual that is interested in joining groups in South or East Belfast,
please contact us and our staff will chat with you about your interests and where you
live and we will signpost you to a group that will fit your needs if you would like to
