Policy, campaigns and debates
KOVE's mission to improve the quality of life for older people in our area includes campaigning on issues that matter to them, with the aim of increasing our influence on policy and policy-makers and thereby securing improved and better facilities. These include:
the provision of public toilets - see more at https://pailondon.org.uk/toilets
transport issues, in particular bus services and crossings
the provision of benches.
Older people often find it difficult to get their voices heard. A few years ago KOVE had significant involvement with the Camden Home Care Service Partnership.

Authored by KOVE's Research Associate, John Miles, it looks at two initiatives – Camden Central Older People’s Steering Group and Kilburn Older Voices Exchange.
