Haringey Circle will be a core element of new services in Haringey for over 50s. It will aim to increase social connections, reduce isolation and loneliness and improve the wellbeing and self-esteem of older people. Based around a varied social calendar developed by members and volunteers, the service will help to grow diverse friendship groups that offer practical and emotional support.
The service will recognise and celebrate the diverse skills and experiences older people have to offer and support them to develop peer support activities, hold community events and deliver training and workshops that address the priorities of people in their locality and enable the sharing of skills.
Everyone has the right to a flourishing, independent later life. A life in which people are able to do the things they want to do in the ways they want to do them.
