Age Well – Hwyliog Môn - A youth club for the over 50s

Seeing is Believing - Co-production Case Studies from Wales

Age Well is a social enterprise and charity which helps the over 50s to improve their confidence and self-esteem, and stay healthy and active in mind and body. The Age Well initiative was initially set up as a three-year project to explore the need and establish activities for the over 50s in Anglesey. When the funding for the project came to an end the members decided unanimously to set up as a social enterprise in their own right. Members – aged between 50 and 95 – now run a highly successful ‘youth club for the over 50s’. Our membership is drawn from the deprived area of Amlwch and the county town of Llangefni on the island of Anglesey.
