The  programme has a Strategic Board which informs and supports  the effective management, co-ordination and delivery of Ageing Better in Camden. Strategic partners will work together to:

  • enhance, develop and inform the strategy to deliver the project

  • provide contacts and promote partnerships to support the project’s aims and objectives

  • identify and act on opportunities to provide added value

  • work together to make lasting improvement which reduce social isolation and loneliness in Camden

  • achieve the agreed outcomes of the project

Age UK Camden is the Ageing Better in Camden lead organisation and is solely responsible to Big Lottery Fund for the delivery of the programme in accordance with Big Lottery Fund terms and conditions. 

Age UK Camden is responsible for all financial and contractual arrangements for the project. This includes any sub-contracts issued as part of the project to deliver services or supply goods. The details of these arrangements will be governed by a separate legal agreement. Age UK Camden will be responsible for all funds received from Big Lottery Fund and will not be liable to make payments to delivery partners until they have received grant payments from Big Lottery Fund. 

Age UK Camden will provide quarterly project performance reports to the Strategic Partnership including finances.
