The facilitated sessions provide opportunity for interactive discussions and activities with a different theme each of the four weeks.
You come away with an Active Ageing Action Plan, and loads of resources.
Make a plan to achieve your bucket list with the Triple A Programme.
You can now invest in your long term wellbeing with a new positive ageing programme aimed at those aged over 45.
Without an action plan for the next stage of their lives, people may be left with fewer choices as their circumstances change.

The four modules are called: Where now, What now, Who now and Happy now!
