Age UK Lewisham & Southwark is here to help older people this winter

For older people in Southwark: In partnership with Southwark CCG, the Warm and Well in Winter programme returns for a third year. We will be distributing winter packs containing items to help people keep warm, offering free information and advice, as well as providing handypeople and shopping support. If you're 65 and over (or in another high risk group), it's also time to think about flu jabs to help to keep well this winter.

For organisations in Southwark: We also offer small grants to local organisations who run an event or activity to bring older people together this winter.
