Our organisation is holding an event on 27th March with 13 stands highlighting how advances in new technology could help make life easier and offer a more independent life for older people in our community.
I have attached the poster and accompanying promotional material which gives a little explanation of each of our exhibitors.

Your Voice in Breckland is a voluntary organisation working with the public and agencies to ensure that Breckland’s older people are represented and have a voice in the provision of services which impact on their lives. We are supported by both Norfolk County Council and Breckland District Council. More information about us can be viewed on our website https://www.breckland.gov.uk/YVIB
We have been holding quarterly themed events since 2012, three with invited speakers on a particular topic and one event a year with stands from various organisations. This year we have decided to try something a little different by holding this themed stands event. Our events are attended by members of the public as well as professionals who work with older people and as we are keen to introduce an intergenerational aspect this year we have also invited senior school students with an interest in social care.
