Welcome to 

Kentish Town Community Centre's

Older People's Project

Headed up by Lisa Gregory email: older people@ktcc.org.uk

The Older People's Project is designed for individuals over the age of 60 and offers a variety of activities, as well as place just to pop in for a cup of tea or coffee.

This project is supported by Ageing Better in Camden, The Community Fund and City Bridge Trust.


 

In light of the Coronavirus we have taken the very difficult decision to suspend all Older People’s Project activities until the end of June. This means we have had to cancel our event tomorrow and post-pone the launch of our new choir.

 

What we are going to do instead…

  • We are going to try and phone round our members each week. We have a staggering 107 members so this may take some time! Erin (our Friday projects facilitator) will be leading on this, stocking up some overtime where needed.

 

  • If our staff can get into work, we will try and send all our older people something nice in the post.  This is going to be a lonely period and want to keep spirits up.

 

  • We are going to have a big Welcome Back Party. We will make this event super special and will hopefully schedule the launch of the choir to coincide with this as well.

 

We are truly gutted that we cannot provide our regular services over the coming months as we had some truly wonderful events planned. We hate to disappoint our members, however from a safety perspective we are unable to take the risk of further spreading the infection to them and our volunteers.

We have a variety of free activities and events exclusive to our Older People's Project at Kentish Town Community Centre. From our Saturday Lunch Club to our Community Events we are bound to have something you will enjoy. 

All our activities are free to attend and there is no commitment when you sign up. Just fill out a form on your first time visiting us and we will keep you posted about all the events we are running just for you!

You can even tell us what you would like to see more of at the centre and we will do our best to book it in for you. Click the links below to see our upcoming events.
