Older People’s Fair

Older people's fair

On Friday 1 July, we are hosting our first ever Older People's Fair.

This event will be open to everyone free of charge, at the Corn Market Hall, Kettering, NN15 7QA, from 10am to 3pm.

We are working together with local community groups, health and care providers, pension credit and debt advisers who can help people plan for, and live, a more fulfilling retirement. Carers and family members are welcome to come along too and learn more.

North Northamptonshire Council is organising the event but it is very much a community event. There will be a range of organisations present including:

  • Northants Police
  • Health
  • Citizens Advice
  • Age UK Northamptonshire

There will be a number of organisations present in the Corn Market Hall. They will be available to talk with you and provide you with information and advice including:

  • debt, money and pension credit advice
  • advice on how to avoid scams and fraud targeted at older people
  • advice on accessing adult social care services
  • information on social activities and clubs
  • health advice and access to healthy activities
  • information on what advice and voluntary services are available

Why we’re holding this event

We want to provide access to information and advice to help ensure residents are getting the support available to them. We are aware that not everyone understands what support is available.

This event aims to help ensure our older residents, as well as their family and carers too if they have them, have the opportunity to find out more and make more informed choices.

What are the benefits of attending this event

There are many retired persons who are not fully aware of the help and assistance available to them. Some of this assistance is financial and could be of benefit, especially considering the challenges of the increase in the cost of living caused by global events.

We are keen to ensure that older people are well informed about the help they are entitled to. We want people to live healthier, more active, independent and fulfilled lives.

You can stay as long as you like. That is completely up to you and will depend on how much you want to find out. Some people may pop in and out in 5 to 10 minutes. Others may want to find out more about areas such as Pension Credit and aids and adaptations. You are welcome to stay and discuss things with our staff, partners, volunteers and other exhibitors.

Please note that this is the first event of its type that we have arranged. We will be keen to receive feedback after the event to help us improve our approach. If you have queries you can email [email protected]
