Southwark Safe and Independent Living (SAIL) and Lewisham SAIL Connections provide a quick and simple way to access a wide range of local services to support older people in maintaining their independence, safety and wellbeing.

Anyone can make a SAIL referral by simply answering the yes/no questions on the checklist below. Age UK Lewisham and Southwark, working in partnership with local SAIL agencies, will coordinate and monitor the response.

The checklist enables access to a wide range of support services which improve:

Health and well-being
Mental resilience
Isolation and social exclusion
Financial inclusion
Fire safety and wider home security issues
Safeguarding concerns
Personal safety and security


Southwark SAIL is available to Southwark residents over the age of 50.

Lewisham SAIL Connections is available to Lewisham residents over the age of 60.
