North East Edinburgh Older Men’s Health and Wellbeing Project aims to increase the social integration of older men (50+) in the North East Edinburgh area, by developing opportunities for isolated older men and by providing activities which promote their mental health and well being.

The project seeks to work inclusively with 50+ older men in the NE Edinburgh area, including older men who may be recently bereaved, depressed, on low incomes or who may be deemed socially isolated / lonely and ‘hard to reach’. It will also target Black & Minority Ethnic (BME) and Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (GBT) community members.

It currently offers a range of activities, including a weekly ‘drop in’, talks, trips and outings…why not come along and give it a try?

Please see http://www.pilmenydevelopmentproject.co.uk/adults for programme of activities/events.

Remember, all of our events are free and they include some light refreshments!
