Search is organising a joint meeting with Healthwatch to help you have your say about health services in the west of Newcastle

On Thursday March 3 you have the opportunity to share your experiences and views about services like the NHS or social care for older people. In the Carnegie building (the old library) the afternoon commences at 12.30 with a free lunch. We will say what we think works and what doesn't work in the health and social care services people receive in Newcastle..All people over 50 are welcome and needed. Give us a ring on 0191 273 7443 so we know you're coming. Download the leaflet.

Thursday March 3

12.30 pm to 3.00 pm 

Carnegie Builing,

Atkinson Road,


Newcastle upon Tyne


Search will be closed from 1 pm on Thursday the 24th of December and re-open on Monday the 4th of January.

Our usual groups will have a break over Christmas and return in the New Year. The only exception is the Tea Dance whcih will have a special Christmas event on Tuesday the 29th of December at Robert Stewart Memorial on Wingrove Road from 1,30 pm to 3.30 pm. Everyone welcome


Our singing group is based on the idea that singing brings people together in a friendly and stimulating social environment.

The group meets 11.30 am to 12.30 pm on the first Thursday of the month at St James Church on Benwell Lane opposite Lidl. Everyone over 50 is warmly invited to attend.

Singing is not only an enjoyable activity, it can also provide a way for people to express themselves and socialise with others in a fun and supportive group. Hidden in the fun are activities which build on the well-known preserved memory for song and music in the brain.

No experience necessary, just a willingness to have fun singing.
