Connect Hackney, Ageing Better

Hackney CVS managed Connect Hackney, a £5.8million research project funded by the National Lottery Community Fund as part of their national Ageing Better programme.

Connect Hackney delivered a range of projects and activities that were a chance for Hackney over 50s to meet people, socialise and have fun. Connect Hackney was also about valuing the contributions older people make to society.

One key projects was the Connect Hackney senior media group – where local residents aged 50+ learnt ICT and media skills and produced content for the Hackney Senior magazine – produced by older people for older people.
