1,000 older people engaged through Outreach Activity!
Our Outreach Team launched in February 2018. Since then the team (Jo, Jill and recently joined by AnneMarie), has met and engaged with over 1,000 older people across Camden.
The approach of the service is to proactively find and meet older people. The team has met older people through a range of outreach activities including street outreach, in pubs, betting shops and cafes, and hosted pop up events following letter drops and door knocks in sheltered housing and a tower block.
Of the thousand older people the service has met so far, information about local activities has been provided to 768 people, over 200 have accepted help and support (referral to a service, coming along to a pop up outreach event) and over 60 people have gone on to attend local activities.
