|Age Exchange works with older people to improve their quality of life by valuing their reminiscences and giving them opportunities for wider appreciation in the form of:
- visual and performance arts projects
- intergenerational projects
- documentary film
Age Exchange was founded in 1983 in the context of an emerging awareness
of the value of reminiscence work, especially in care settings for
older people. For more than 25 years we have developed new models of
work offering participants a wide range of reminiscence-based creative
activities and arts products.
We have also extended our work nationally to many new target-groups, focussing on those at risk of social exclusion. We are now recognised nationally and internationally by many providers of services in the statutory and voluntary sectors as being the leading practitioners, consultants and sources of information about reminiscence work.
