Connect Hackney has a steering group, made up of local older people, who take the day to day decisions about how the project is run. Shirley Murgraff (pictured, right) is the steering group chair, with Lois Radice as vice-chair.
Connect Hackney has three core values:
• upholding human rights
• upholding older people’s parity of esteem
• equal treatment and the right to self-determination.
We are also campaigning to help younger people see the over 50s in a more positive way. Let’s make sure Hackney’s older people are not ignored or marginalised.
