Social events

First time for everythingStaying active and keeping in touch with friends is important at any age, but when you’re older, it is crucial.

Royal Voluntary Service and Prudential UK & Europe are working together to provide free and enjoyable new social events. The First Time for Everything project supports active ageing and aims to improve quality of life for older people at 22 locations across Britain.

Try something new for free!

From making a pot on a potter’s wheel to learning the art of tai chi, a range of fun, monthly social events will be held at community locations across the country.

At a First Time for Everything event you can expect to meet new people, in a friendly and welcoming environment as well as take part in an exciting activity.

Get in touch if you'd like to join us at one of our events, find out more information or share your ideas for future First Time for Everything events.
