We are looking to develop a peer-led network bringing together people ageing without children as a community, locally and across the UK through:
- Local groups – where people ageing without children can come together for peer support, to share experiences, obtain information and work with local organisations to ensure that the needs of people ageing without children are included in policy, planning and services for older people. The local groups will be run by volunteers ageing without children and supported by AWwoC;
- A private online community – hosted on our website where people ageing without children can share experiences, discuss issues and get support from other members;
- Events and workshops – on matters of relevance to our community to help plan for a positive later life without children and to support those already struggling with issues; and
- Bi-annual conferences – we are planning to hold the next conference in 2020.
