Age Exchange is a national centre for Reminiscence Arts and dementia intervention. We create intergenerational projects and are also a vibrant community hub in the heart of south east London.
At Age Exchange we put people at the heart of what we do. Watch a short video in the work of Age Exchange…
We offer a broad programme of training and support services for people and their carers living with dementia together with regular training and support for Reminiscence Arts Practitioners and community workers. Our community hub remains at the heart of Blackheath village providing a library, reminiscence café and activities for older people, ranging from art classes, belly dancing and seated Pilates. For over 33 years we have been committed to supporting older people to remain healthy and well, whether through a specialist intervention or through everyday support provided in our centre and in the community by our team of 102 active volunteers.
Getting involved with Age Exchange has long been a popular choice for students, parents and retired people alike.
We are a diverse organisation that achieves a lot in a variety of fields, not just the visible activities like the café or the library, but also art projects and specialist work with older people. Opportunities include:
Community Hub Roles (Duke of Edinburgh placements welcome)
Cafe – food preparation, serving and sales
Library – basic librarianship (training provided)
Information Desk – welcoming visitors, signposting and some basic administration
