The Older People's Project
When the Coronavirus pandemic hit we immediately set up a phone bank and spoke to all our Older People to let them know that we were changing our service. We kept in contact with our members, sent out letters and treats, provided assistance for those that needed help and ran surveys and fun competitions to keep everyone’s spirits up. Emergency food parcels were delivered for our older people who were in real need.
The KTCC Trustees agreed that it was very important that where we could remain open, we would. The centre public opening hours were restructured predominantly so people could take or donate to the foodbank and calls could be made to our older people.
During the height of the spring lockdown we asked all our members what they would like to see from the project when we returned.
They did not disappoint and provided us lots of ideas for activities.
For the first time ever we will be a multi-platform project providing regular face to face, online and correspondence clubs, as well as one off events. Our new Masterclass Series will involve short courses in a variety of subjects delivered across these platforms ensuring that there will be something for all of our members to enjoy. These include…
Keep Fit with Amerissa Vogiatzi – face to face
Creatives and Poetry Club – correspondence club
Masterclass: Keynotes of Kentish Town – walking tour
