ABOUT US          zacc logo

The Zacchaeus Project works to tackle the long-term needs of older people and their carers by enabling them to participate more actively in positive community activities. As a ministry of the Methodist Church in Tower Hamlets which links grass-root projects across the borough, the Zacchaeus Project aims:

To promote the physical and mental health of older people and their carers through social and recreational activities

To advise and support users in accessing benefits, caring and health services to which they are entitled;

To signpost users to statutory and voluntary sector services such as respite care, occupational therapy, transport services, hospices, bereavement services and specialised support for carers and people experiencing long-term health conditions;

To raise awareness amongst third sector and statutory organisations about health issues affecting older people and their carers;

To identify and provide holistic approaches to addressing health issues affecting older people through programmes of complementary therapies and fitness activities;

To support socially excluded older people and their carers in achieving their full potential through educational and training opportunities;

To build on the strength of the local community to make a contribution to decision-making processes which affect their lives;

To provide a variety of services for older people and their carers under one roof.
