Welcome to SWESA

 

SouthWest Edmonton Seniors Association (SWESA) is one of Edmonton’s newest seniors’ centres and we invite you to join us! SWESA is member-driven, working in concert with community groups and partners. Our programs and services empower older adults in southwest Edmonton to be active and feel part of a vibrant community of seniors.

Through a number of community locations, SWESA offers:
• Instructional Classes and Drop-in Activities (e.g., fitness, arts and crafts, informational talks and workshops, games and cards, coffee and chat)
• Services (e.g. access to home support services, book shops, a puzzle exchange, volunteer opportunities).
• Events and Activities (e.g. monthly luncheons, choir, bus tours, book club)

DURING COVID 19, SWESA HAS INTRODUCED A HOST OF NEW ONLINE PROGRAMS

Due to the Covid 19 precautions which still ban group indoor fitness programs, SWESA was temporarily closed on Friday November 13, 2020. CLICK HERE to discover new online programs.  As soon as Alberta Health Services gives us the green light, we will re-open and once more enjoy a wide variety of programs and social activities.

FUNDRAISING

This year will continue to be a challenge as long as Covid 19 precautions preclude our usual activities. SWESA’s operating funds come from grants; membership and program fees; and a variety of fundraising efforts. Fundraising ensures our programs are affordable, accessible and can grow to meet the interests of people 55+ in southwest Edmonton.  Click on the buttons below to find out more about fundraising in 2021 and watch for new of our Annual Appeal this fall.
