is recognised as the leading UK charity working in the field of reminiscence.
In 2013 Age Exchange celebrated its 30th anniversary.
"Children of The Great War" Theatre Production & Installation
Over the past year Age Exchange have been working on a major WW1 reminiscence project recording over 125 family stories across London.
The project culminated in a film installation and a theatre production at the Bridewell Theatre in London in August 2014. The theatre production included children from St Matthews Academy and Plumstead Manor School. The young people worked with older people with family stories and created an extraordinary piece of theatre.
"The elders stood justly proud at the end, while the teenagers acted out their stories and devised movement sequences of power, imagery and strength, stood shoulder to shoulder alongside them; comrades in arms."
Pauline Flannery Online theatre Reviewer

Children of the Great War - Website
Children of the Great War is a London-wide project telling and recording memories and experiences of the First World War passed down through families and across communities.
As part of the project, we have launched a new website to showcase some of the highlights of the project and to provide links to some of the fascinating material collected.

Pioneering initiative that will model future provision of Reminiscence Arts in Care
Reminiscence Arts and Dementia – Impact on Quality of Life (RADIQL), is a three year programme created by Age Exchange. The programme aims to provide a model of excellence in the provision of person-centred creative care for older people in South London. It seeks to improve the quality of life and wellbeing for the older people who participate in the programme, specifically those with dementia.
The initiative has been funded with a grant of £595,500 from Guy's and St Thomas' Charity in line with their ambitions to support innovation in health which will improve the health and wellbeing of the population of the two London Boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark, but which may influence changes in policy and practice more widely.
Age Exchange are delighted to announce an extensive programme of activities and events available in the new Reminiscence Centre and Bakehouse Building in Blackheath Village. These events are made possible through the generous support of The Merchant Taylors Company and Lewisham Council.
Events will include talks, classes and short courses as well as ongoing groups and meetings for community groups.
