Age UK Camden AGM

AUC Annual General Meeting- A Success

Age UK Camden held its AGM on Tuesday the 10th November, which was very well attended and guest speaker Leisha Fullick, Chair of Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust spoke about plans, challenges and partnership work.


After the AGM we celebrated 50 years as a borough-wide organisation, where it began life as the Camden Older People's Welfare Association (COPWA), with the inaugural meeting taking place in June 1965.In 1985 it became a registered charity under the name of Camden Age Concern (CamAC), and in November of that year became a company limited by guarantee.


We enjoyed the anniversary party, complete with cake, and balloons, and Volunteer Manager Geraldine also presented gifts to those nominated for the Camden50 Volunteer Awards.

Our Services

Digital Inclusion

In general, older people are more likely to be disadvantaged in harnessing the power of ICT and therefore less able to overcome the digital divide.
This video, made by Governance International, gives an overview of Age UK Camden's Computer Training Project and how we help older people to bridge the gap.

Opening Doors London-Evaluation

Opening Doors London (ODL) is the regional Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender* (LGBT*) service based at Age UK Camden, run in association with Age UK London.

LGBT* older people experience more social isolation and wider mental health problems than their straight peers, but ODL makes a key difference.

ODL’s impressive 2015 evaluation results are here: ODL Evaluation 2015 and a summary can be seen via this infographic:
