This week we mark the Windrush Anniversary and celebrate Windrush Day on the 22 June.
Click here to read the story of the Windrush Generation. And here today we cover the challenges with isolation and connecting online, self-care and project sustainability, and Black Lives Matter.
It’s been a packed and intense couple of months for many, so with last week having been Loneliness Awareness Week, we bring you this expanded online newsletter to share the key learning and tips we’ve captured from our partners delivering projects for Connect Hackney – our programme of 25 projects to prevent and reduce social isolation and loneliness for those over 50 years old.
We have collated the most useful thoughts, ideas and insights shared by our delivery partners that I’m sure many of you will resonate with – whether you deliver projects of any kind, or attend them, as well as some valuable resources from the wider Hackney CVS.
