A GUIDE has been published for over-50s in Northumberland.

The Golden Guide is a free handbook for over 50s in Northumberland, supported by partners Northumberland Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust (NTW), Northumberland County Council, Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Age UK Northumberland, Isos Housing and other sponsors.

The guide includes facts and tips on money, health and care, leisure and transport information – all with local contacts around the county.

A total of 6,000 copies of the 2013 version are being printed.

Editor Heather Alabaster said: “People find the Golden Guide so useful that now we get requests from all over the county, and it’s not just older people – their families, friends and carers want them too.

“Last year we promised to print more.

“So we’re delighted to have found sponsorship from NTW which has enabled us to publish an extra thousand copies.”

Copies are available at a range of outlets, online or by phoning Age UK Northumberland’s Advice Line on 0845 0 950 150.
