Brocals win Community Transport Award

Hackney Brocals were recently at the Community Transport Awards where they won the ‘Doing Things Differently’ award.

Hackney Brocals, a Connect Hackney funded project, are local men, or ‘bros’, who go all out to conquer ‘bronliness’ in their communities – the state of being somewhat isolated, and somewhat bothered by it, but “definitely also being too much of a bro to want to talk about it”.

Brocals aims to support the psycho-social needs of older men through a regular series of minibus and coach trips within Hackney and outside London, and through home-based peer support for Older Bros who may not be able to get out of the house as much as they would like.
