Silver Linings. Connect Hackney Ageing Better

Our films

The Silver Linings project – run by Groundwork London and funded through Connect Hackney Ageing Better – brought together local older people to share social activities and to help others through volunteering. In the video, participants explain how they enjoyed taking part and how doing so improved their social lives.

I was able to meet a lot of people my age and learn about their backgrounds. I just use my freedom pass when I get here and I’m on the world tour in this little area.
