Who we are

Third Age Project was established over two decades ago in January 1997 to serve the needs of 1 in 4 of the local population who are over 60 years of age. Over the last two decades it has become an important and popular facility within the borough of Camden and widely recognised as a successful multicultural community resource centre.

Our mission

TAP’s mission is to turn on its head the prevalent view that the Third Age is a burden on society and promote the view old people are valuable and important assets to be placed at the very heart of a community. In doing so we transform older people’s lives, nurture creative aspiration, co-produce low cost services and build community, reversing the declining quality of life and well-being of the elderly.

Upcoming events

We run a variety of activities throughout the week for our members so there’s something for everyone.

We organise a wide and varied range of healthy living, community learning, befriending and support and physical activity programmes for older people of all abilities and interests.

Success stories

We have a strong self-help ethos that empowers and supports older people to take on key volunteering roles within the Charity.

Case study 1

Mr & Mrs H (85 and 81 years old) are a Chinese couple who joined to put something back in to their community and ran our 60+ Health Club café. It proved highly popular and created a wonderfully inclusive social space for members to meet and make new friends. “Running the café has given us a sense of pride in contributing to our community.” Most recently they went on accredited training to become volunteer walk leaders and each week take older people through Regents Park. Feedback from newcomers has been excellent stating they had been made very welcome and quickly made new friendships.

Case study 2

Mrs F is a 79 year-old great grandmother of mixed ethnicity who has become one of our new volunteer Welcome Hosts and especially provides support to people coming to the centre for the first time, making them feel welcome. Mrs F says “The project has changed my life, given me a sense of purposes. I feel very much part of a community and helping others brings its own rewards.”

Case study 3

J (80), L (83) and B (70) helped set up the Men’s Shed to improve our services and level of engagement with older men– generally agreed to be particularly hard to reach. J and B were elected by the other older men as their representatives at the monthly Volunteer Forum that helps to obtain feedback and set future priorities and initiatives.
