The national day for older people

Sunday, 2nd October 2022

Whether you want to take part in or organise something, Silver Sunday is for you.

What is Silver Sunday?

Initially launched as a local campaign to tackle loneliness and isolation, Silver Sunday is now a national day where people of all generations can come together by hosting fun and free activities for older people. It is a day where older people can meet new people, visit new places, try new activities and connect with their local communities and the generations around them.

Who is taking part?

Anyone and everyone can take part.  In 2019 there were more than 1,200 events for older people across the UK, organised by wonderful local groups, businesses and volunteers. This year well over 100 organisations have pledged their support, whatever COVID throws at us.

At a time when the loneliness and isolation being felt by our older citizens has never been more acute, please help us by making this the biggest Silver Sunday yet by putting on a Silver Sunday event, helping others who are already involved or simply take part in a Silver Sunday event in your community.

Take a look at our calendar and map to see who has registered events in your local area.  Many more are being loaded every day.
