Videos showcase our Silver Linings and Mindfulness projects

Connect Hackney has launched two new videos, looking back at projects we funded during the first phase of our programme.

The Silver Linings project – run by Groundwork London – 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.


In our second video, older people who took part in a mindfulness meditation course run by Hoxton Health talk about how it helped them, giving a boost to their feelings of wellbeing and self-confidence.

To play the videos, just click on the picture of the screen above. If you then click on the word YouTube, you will be able to watch the video on a larger screen.
