Embedding diversity across services


Connect Hackney recently held a learning event: Embedding diversity across services – Ageing Well in Hackney: Finding solutions to Older People’s isolation.

The latest in Connect Hackney’s series of learning events about Finding solutions for Older People’s isolation.

This learning event was co-produced with members of Connect Hackney’s Older People’s Committee, delivery partners, volunteers and project participants. The session heard about the latest social science insights from the Connect Hackney programme’s university research team.

The session featured a combination of themed creative contributions, discussions and interactive activities, case studies and programme evaluation and learning highlights.


These events are part of a series and follow on from our November event which focused on the digital divide, and systems change. You can read the reports shared at the last event here.

Both sessions in the series are being co-produced with members of Connect Hackney’s Older People’s Committee, delivery partners, volunteers and project participants. The tapestry of voices and wisdom, gleaned from extensive personal and professional experience, combined with the latest scientific insights from our university research team, makes these events our richest yet.
