55+ Women’s Project

Who can benefit from the project?

This project targets Turkish, Kurdish, Cypriot, and Turkish-speaking Hackney resident women over the age of 55. The project aims to ensure that women can live their lives in a secure environment and to avoid isolation and loneliness through cultural activities and group work. We also offer qualified, understandable advice on general needs and welfare rights in order to raise women’s awareness and empower them to make informed decisions.
