Older People's Services


Queen’s Crescent is in England’s top ten percent of areas where Over-65s describe themselves as ‘lonely’, according to the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG)’s most recent Indices of Social Deprivation (2015).


That’s why Queen's Crescent Community Association's (QCCA) services for older people tackle social isolation and health problems that can trap people at home.


It runs a full programme of 'Forever Young' activities for the over 60s each weekday at its main centre behind Queen’s Crescent market. 


There are regular sessions in everything from chair-based exercises and Dancercise to tapestry and drama. For those who find it hard to get around, the organisation has a mini-bus service with door-to-door pick-ups twice a week.


Regulars are served a two-course lunch, cooked by QCCA’s in-house award-winning chef, Simon Assaf, with help from volunteers. Simon specialises in older people’s nutrition


Everything is either free or low cost – in line with the charity’s philosophy that affordable services encourage community, integration and tolerance.  In March 2019 it received an award from the Mayor of Camden for the Healthier Catering Commitment and five star food hygiene certificate.
