Ageing Well Webinars

Our programme of webinars is intended to complement and support South Ayrshire's Age Friendly Community Network and inform development of our Ageing Well Strategy. Join us to hear from a range of sector leading experts to explore the topic of ageing well.

Each webinar session will consist of around 30 minutes of input from our experts followed by an opportunity for questions from the 'virtual audience' (1 hour in total).

These sessions will be held over Friday lunchtimes on Microsoft Teams and are open to anyone who wants to attend, including members of the public, staff and stakeholder organisations.
