Welcome to Age UK East London!

Age UK East London is a local independent charity working with older people mainly in the boroughs of Hackney, Newham and Tower Hamlets. For every £1 we raise, 82p is spent on working directly with older people in their homes, in the community and in hospitals. The remainder is spent on making sure we do it well and on supporting our staff and volunteers to provide a safe and friendly service!

The ` Building Older People’s Influence in Hackney` report has been issued.

Between April 2015 and Mar 2019, we were a strategic partner of the Connect Hackney programme.  The project aimed to support older people in Hackney to co-produce and test and learn from different approaches to two of the programme’s key outcomes.  This was firstly to embed a more positive view towards ageing and older people and secondly, to look at how to increase direct involvement of older people in shaping policy and holding key stakeholders to account. 

How the project evolved, what we learned on the way and our key findings and recommendations for how to reach older people and keep them involved in their community is outlined in our report ‘Building Older Peoples Influence in Hackney : Understanding influence, recognising leadership and sharing best practice.
