Forward Thinking Hackney
Forward Thinking Hackney was a network of social events and activities for men in midlife at risk of social isolation.
Research showed that men over the age of 50 are less likely to turn to their social circles for advice. Through a community ambassador Forward Thinking Hacknet provided access to resources, advice, local knowledge, and peer-support on planning for later life.
I was asked to co-design and co-facilitate a workshop with Age Well Hackney and Common Ground, based on my MA project work.
The project lead to the production of a small scale pilot, which Age UK Hackney indtend to scale up across the borough.
