Benches are a place to take a break, enjoy a moment of contemplation or have a catch up. Kilburn Older Voices Exchange (KOVE) share their insight on years of community campaigning, working with the council and local residents to get more benches in the places where older residents need them most. This is what they learnt.
In October 2015 Ageing Better in Camden commissioned thirteen pharmacies in the borough to identify older people who were lonely or isolated and refer them to Community Connectors. We want to share what we learnt with other organisations looking to do similar work.
