Forward Thinking Hackney

Forward Thinking Hackney was a network of social events and activities for men in midlife at risk of social isolation.

What:
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.

So What:
I was asked to co-design and co-facilitate a workshop with Age Well Hackney and Common Ground, based on my MA project work.  

Now What:
The project lead to the production of a small scale pilot, which Age UK Hackney indtend to scale up across the borough.
