Imago is a social action charity working across Kent, Medway, East Sussex and London. We deliver a range of services and projects; supporting independence, reducing social isolation and creating opportunities, for some of the most vulnerable in our communities.
In addition we help voluntary and community sector organisations operate more effectively by offering a range of information, advice, resources, training and support.

CAMEO is a successful IMAGO model supporting people 50+ who are socially isolated or experiencing loneliness due to changing life circumstances : in the Dartford, Gravesham & Swanley areas.

A 12 week programme bringing participants together through a series of activities
including advice sessions, practical skills development, social events & peer support
participants can attend one or more sessions.

Programme groups become self-sustaining, growing beyond the life of the project, to include participation in volunteering opportunities.

We want to help participants feel less isolated, make close friends, manage life situations better, have reduced anxiety, have a better awareness of volunteering opportunities & feel better connected to their community.

We really look forward to welcoming new participants & partner agencies.
