We have received funding from the Kensington & Chelsea Foundation to support a project focusing on community members over the age of 50.
The Elderly Befriending Project will provide home visits to vulnerable elders and will also be running regular monthly meetings, encouraging people to socialise and improve their well-being.
The meetings will take place within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Specific dates and venues will be announced on this site in the near future.
Hodan has recently expanded its successful Empowerment Club project and is now running a second session at the White City Community Centre, on Friday mornings. This has been made possible through the support of the National Lottery ‘Awards for All’ programme.
This is a great opportunity for women of all ages and backgrounds who live in the following West London boroughs: Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham, Ealing, Hounslow and Hillingdon.
Sessions are now taking place at the following venues:
Every Wednesday, 11 AM – 1 PM @ Canalside House, London Ladbroke Grove W10 5AA
Every Friday, 10.30 AM – 12.30 PM @ White City Community Centre, India Way, London W12 7QT
Occasional workshops in confidence-building and community asset mapping will also be offered at these and other venues – please watch this space for more information!
