The Hackney Circle

The Hackney Circle is a pilot project which is being developed by The Decorators with the residents of Keswick and Parton lodge, a supported housing scheme for older people on the edge of Dalston Square. There are currently 376,250 elderly people in care homes in England, and with a rapidly ageing population the issue of social isolation that many retirement homes face can be exacerbated by the rapid process of gentrication and change that many of London’s inner city boroughs are experiencing.
