Learning Lunches (and Breakfasts and Teas)

/, Older People/Learning Lunches (and Breakfasts and Teas)

By Jessica Duffy, Time to Shine Learning Facilitator

Time to Shine (TTS), the LOPF programme that aims to reduce loneliness and social isolation in people over the age of 50, is running a programme of networking events that will enable projects to get together and discuss a specific area of interest.

Events hope to unite those who have knowledge of the topic, with others who would like to know more so they can implement changes or new ideas within their own practice.

You might come because you know nothing but want to, or because you have an idea for your project and want to ‘road test’ it with interested colleagues before you start.

Meetings will start with some informal presentations and then offer plenty of time for discussion.

The first few subjects for discussion are those we already have learning on from the first round of TTS Delivery Partner projects, and they run across a range of time slots as well to see what works for people.

From March we will be looking for subjects for meetings, either something you want to share or something you need to know about.

Events are free and open to anyone with an interest in the subject, not just those who are running TTS funded projects. They are aimed at staff and volunteers who are running projects.

You need to book as spaces are limited. Eventbrite links below:




If you are interested in principle but unable to attend because timings don’t suit please let me know as I will be making adjustments to the programme as we go along (though I know I will never suit everyone).
