Going out now and through the year The Golden Guide, a free local advice guide for over 50s is going out now across North Tyneside and Newcastle.

This free annual guide is packed with tips on finding help with money, health or care issues and with all kinds of leisure activities, socialising and community networks.

Find out where to try climbing to canoeing to creative writing, how to de-mystify all things digital, or simply find more places to socialise and ways to make friends. There are expert local contacts for pensions, benefits and legal help, consumer advice and health—including information on priority services for isolated or vulnerable older people.
