Southwark S.A.I.L. (Safe and Independent Living) and Lewisham S.A.I.L. 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 S.A.I.L. referral by simply answering the yes/no questions on the checklist below. Age UK Lewisham and Southwark, working in partnership with local S.A.I.L. 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 S.A.I.L. is available to Southwark residents over the age of 50.

Lewisham S.A.I.L. Connections is available to Lewisham residents over the age of 60.
