Older People's Project

One of CAWH’s organisational aims is to improve the wellbeing of older people in West Hampstead and Fortune Green.

Through the Wellbeing Project – Older People’s Project, we are working to increase social and volunteering networks to help reduce isolation and develop a sense of community for older people in the area.

We offer a range of opportunities for people to stay active and involved through a series of events, weekly classes and social gatherings.

Our activities include Dance for Fitness, older men’s fitness, art classes, a gardening project, visits to the British Museum and online and face to face social groups. Whether you are sporty or arty, or just like to have a chat over a cup of tea, our groups give older people a chance to make new friends, get creative and stay fit and healthy.

Local older people have reported that the Wellbeing Project has provided them with a place to come and make contact with other people, to socialise, learn new skills, have new experiences that help maintain their links to the wider community and keeps them involved. People who participate often become involved in either running activities or volunteering in other projects at the community centre.

We are always keen to hear your ideas for activities we could run so please get in touch by email at and share your thoughts.
