Learning for the Fourth Age (L4A) is a Leicester-based charity which believes you are never too old to learn. L4A provides learning to older people across Leicester and Leicestershire who are receiving care, either in their own homes or nursing settings. They currently work with around 200 older people each week, supported by 80 volunteers. Learning partnerships include subject areas such as IT, art and craft activities, family history and reminiscence.
