It is a joint community and church initiative which offers a safe and welcoming forum for meeting, sharing experiences and accessing emotional, practical, financial, educational, recreational and health care support.
Providing a range of services developed as a result of direct feedback from users, the Project equips older people to make informed decisions for themselves. It aims to empower socially or economically marginalised users to strengthen their individual and collective voices.
Anyone and everyone over 50 is welcome.
Regular Activities are listed in full. News, special events and cafe times are shown under Upcoming Events.
Calling in for a coffee one day gives new-comers a chance to have a look round. Many who try a 'taster' session of something that attracts them go on to call in regularly.
NB With the expiry of Lottery funding in February, the project is currently being funded exclusively by the Methodist Church in Tower Hamlets (March- December 2017). The Church is conducting a community audit around Bethnal Green. The trustees are keen to contact potential partners and to identify other areas of work, to ensure not only that this important work continue, but also that opportunities for the future be explored.
