Older People's Projects

Connect Hackney, Ageing Better

Hackney CVS manages Connect Hackney, a £5.8million project funded by the Big Lottery Fund as part of their national Ageing Better programme.

Connect Hackney delivers a range of projects and activities that are a chance for Hackney over 50s to meet people, socialise and have fun. Connect Hackney is also about valuing the contributions older people make to society, and to challenging social isolation and ageism.

One of the projects is the Connect Hackney senior media group – where local residents aged 50+ learn ICT and media skills and produce content for the Hackney Senior magazine.
