Growing Old Disgracefully is an older women’s network which challenges the stereotypes of older women. We come together to have fun, to share our experiences and knowledge, to learn from each other, and to grow together in a safe and non-judgemental environment.
All over the UK, women are meeting to participate in activities, seize new opportunities and forge new friendships. We call these meetings Growing Old Disgracefully Groups! There are currently active groups all over the UK and there’s sure to be one near you. Check with us to see where your nearest group meets. If you would like to begin a new group, we’re here to help. Our team offers help, support and even financial assistance to those starting new groups.
Growing Old Disgracefully is an older women's network where members create most of their own events and activities.
At Growing Old Disgracefully, we understand it’s not always possible to attend group meetings. That’s why we introduced our Cybergoddies group! This is an online environment where members can meet up to catch up with friends and discuss upcoming events. Many women find this a useful service with which to keep in touch. If you would like to join the Cybergoddies group, please visit its dedicated web page here.
We also organise workshops on subjects both serious and light-hearted.
There is never any obligation to join in anything, but it is always worth a try. You can suggest or organise your own activities as well!
We produce a newsletter ” Network News” 4 times a year which is always eagerly anticipated! As a member, you’ll receive a digital copy and previous issues are available in our members' section. Our more distant members are also able to feel connected through the newsletter.
