We are the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’s largest independent older people’s organisation dedicated to creating an environment in which older people are active partners in the decisions that affect their lives. We work to help alleviate social isolation and loneliness and to bring higher standards of housing, health, social care, transport, leisure facilities, safety and community services for the older residents of the Royal Borough.
We have a record since our inception in 1996 of helping older residents gain the confidence to influence decision-making processes. Our diverse membership represents the entire Borough and currently stands at over 1000 members. We are a registered charity [number 1158108] and have enormous recognition in the Borough, having worked in partnership with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and NHS Kensington and Chelsea. We have received the support of celebrities, the press and the local government.
We hold 52 events on health, wellbeing, finance, scams, culture and history each year in five hubs. We also hold four events in the Kensington Town Hall which includes an annual Christmas Party.
Our events feature speakers from world-renowned health organisations as well as from the world of art and culture.
