St Hilda’s East Community Centre is a busy community centre serving London’s East End, with charitable objectives of relief of need resulting from poverty and old age. Established in 1889 as a settlement by Cheltenham Ladies College, it is a locally managed, vibrant and well used charity, situated on the edge of the City in Tower Hamlets. Serving a diverse community through 15 services: from under 5s, youth projects, legal advice, mental health to elderly day care, the organisation acts as a vehicle for social cohesion.
From Generation to Generation brings older and younger people together so they can have fun together and learn from each other. Intergen, one of our services works with schools in local neighbourhoods, sharing the untapped range of skills and knowledge that older citizens have to offer, reducing their isolation and loneliness and building stronger communities. Encouraging older people to volunteer, in their local schools, raises their aspirations, as well as those of the pupils.
