Abstract

Feature — Volunteer project Older volunteers in Camden are helping to teach children in places like schools and play centres. Launched by Age Concern Camden, the Trans Age Action scheme is bringing benefits to both the young and the old. It demonstrates how the talents and energy of older people can be particularly helpful in an inner-London multi-ethnic borough. Article written by Derek Heptinstall based on material from Annabelle White, development manager , former co-ordinator of the scheme. So often older people are viewed as admit to being “over 60”. “With accepted me immediately.” Some of a problem: The very aged are going voluntary work you can do more the other staff Louise describes as to consume more health and com- than ever,” she says. “overbearing” and it takes little munity care services, they are “bed Like all the scheme’s volunteers imagination to visualise some of the blockers” in hospitals, they need she was asked for two references, personality clashes that could arise if expensive residential and nursing was checked out by the police and an older volunteer found a teacher’s home care, they spend too much had to attend a three-day training methods or attitude disagreeable or, time
