Kilburn Older Voices Exchange (KOVE) is a registered charity, number 1137417, with five trustees: Ags Irwin (Chair), Lynda Stuart (Vice-Chair), Frances Eley (Treasurer), Phyllis Young and Violet Clarkson. They meet regularly with our Steering Group. Our Secretary and Co-ordinator is Peter Lush and Deborah Knight is the part-time Community Development Worker.
KOVE is part of the Ageing Better in Camden project, which is run by Age UK Camden. KOVE is also supported by The Mercers' Company and by the Waitrose Community Fund.
KOVE is an independent, constituted community group for older people in the Kilburn, West Hampstead, Finchley Road and Swiss Cottage areas. We work closely with various other local groups and community centres. We have a community partnership approach by working with different agencies, engaging them in joint project work to try and improve service delivery with the participation of older people and service users. We also make films with local people to highlight particular issues and problems.
Please see the partnership page for details of the groups we work with.
