The Connect Hackney senior media group is made up of Hackney residents aged over 50 – with Walter, aged 87, our oldest participant to date.
Media group members receive training in computers, photography, interviewing and writing skills and produce stories, photos, and audio for the Connect Hackney website and Hackney Senior magazine. No previous experience is needed as full training and support is given. Everyone is welcome in our friendly group.
Connect Hackney is part of the Big Lottery Fund’s Ageing Better programme.
"I joined the group to see if I can learn to do computer, because mostly everything now is digital - computer this, computer that!"
