A Borough United includes all of our work that is intergenerational or has a focus with older people.
A Borough United reaches out to people who live, work and visit Haringey and the surrounding areas, providing vital arts opportunities to connect and contribute to a happier community.
There is a variety of projects including social lunches, Broadway Brunches and IT workshops for older people; an intergenerational theatre group that is self-led, and projects aimed at women’s safety.
We are repeatedly told by the people we support that the major outcomes of the work we do are reducing isolation and increasing engagement in the community for all.
Good for social cohesion and uplifts the soul
Partnerships and volunteering
We work with lots of partner organisations to make this work happen, including Haringey Council, Homes for Haringey, Solace Women’s Aid, Shine Centre and Highgate Society to name just a few.
In A Borough United a lot of the work is led by volunteers and sometimes the volunteers are participants themselves. To see the projects and find out how you could get involved click on the project names on the side bar.
This answers frustrating questions and it empowers me
Baring Foundation Report
We were asked by the Baring Foundation to conduct a report on how arts venues can be more age friendly and how this work can be more sustainable. A Borough United went and spoke to many different organisations and practitioners who work with older people and arts to find out the answer to the question the Baring Foundation asked us.
