New service for LGBT* people aged 50+ in Hackney

Source By:  City & Hackney Carers

A new service is now available to LGBT* people aged 50+ in Hackney. The Out and About Project aims to prevent and reduce social isolation through a combination of life coaching and peer support. It is ideal for anyone who has been through a transition in their lives such as retirement, becoming a carer, recovering from an operation, breakdown of a relationship or death of a partner. Coaching is a facilitative process designed to help clients live meaningful and fulfilling lives.
More information can be found on our website- (

We are also conducting some research on social isolation in the LGBT* community, looking at the issues and the kind of support those who are affected would like to see. We are hosting a dinner as part of this research. Info below:
