Our experienced team can help connect you to events and activities in Camden.

How does the service work?

Camden’s Community Connectors help you to connect with your community in a way that suits you. This could include introducing you to activities you might like like to try in Camden:

  1. Your Community Connector will Call you to discuss your interests, and source activities or events that you might enjoy.
  2. Your Community Connector will help you get there or help you get online if the activity is hosted virtually. 
  3. Your Community Connector can also attend with you (where possible)  initially to see if it works for you, and to help you get your confidence up. 

Alternatively, our Community Connectors can assist you with helping others get involved with activities or events taking place in Camden.

  • Chatting with people and make them feel welcome at activities or events being hosted in Camden.
  • Welcoming you into our family of services, and supporting you to share your experience with others.

Camden Community Connectors is a free, informal and friendly service for any Camden resident aged 60 or above.

Without the National Lottery's Community Fund, we wouldn't be able to provide our vital Community Connector Service. Demand for our services since the start of the pandemic has risen exponentially, but we still need the support from vital donations to help us continue providing support. To donate now, click here
