We recognise that ‘older people’ or those over 55 is a broad cohort of people. We also recognise that the growing number of older people in our area face continuing and significant challenges – particularly in relation to poverty, isolation and reduced support available through statutory services. We will provide a welcoming, varied and inclusive portfolio of services encouraging healthy living, bringing people together and providing intensive support for those with greater need.
Our Befriending Project matches volunteers with isolated older people across south Camden. Meeting weekly, they build up a relationship, providing company and taking part in activities like cooking, reading or making performance art pieces! The point is to reduce older people’s loneliness and the impact isolation has on their well-being.
We run a range of activities to stimulate older people socially, cognitively and physically to improve their emotional and physical well-being. These regularly include Singing, Arts and Crafts, Inter-generational activities, Tai Chi and gardening. You can view the latest timetable here
Looking after each other
We bring people together to make sure our members get the little things that keep them feeling and looking good from a visit from the hairdresser to clothes sales and daily lunch club
Speaking up for older people
We support our members in other ways, acting as a voice for older people – advocating for them as part of health and care assessments, helping them with questions about their benefits and bills and making sure they get the right support from GP’s and transport services.
