Senior Centre without walls

Seniors’ Centre Without Walls (SCWW) is a free interactive telephone-based program that connects seniors 50+. It is a seniors’ centre from the comfort of home!

 

Seniors’ Centre Without Walls Basics:

· Completely free program

· You do not need to be a member of South Gate Centre

· Programs are multi-person phone conversations (or conference calls)

· No special equipment needed – just your average phone!

· Each phone session lasts between 30-60 minutes

· You are able to hear each other, talk to one another, learn and have fun!

How do I participate in the calls?

On the day and time of a chosen program you can use the “Steps to Connect” (see below) to call yourself into that program.
