Connect Hackney

Connect Hackney
Ageing Better

Connect Hackney was one of 14 programmes across England funded by The National Lottery Community Fund’s ‘Fulfilling Lives, Ageing Better programme.'

Connect Hackney was a research programme, and funded local voluntary and community sector organisations to test approaches to prevent and/or reduce loneliness and isolation amongst older people, and evaluate their impact.

This website remains as a legacy to the programme. We hope our evaluation and learning pages and the media projects we co-produced with local older people will influence policy and decision makers and thus help people to age better.
