Our Services

Advice and Information

We operate an Advice and Information Service which is free, independent and confidential to older people, their relatives, carers and friends.We provide information on issues affecting older people such as welfare benefits, community care, leisure and health.

Please note our new address in Havering:

Community Reach House, 32-34 High Street, Romford RM1 1HR


This service is a volunteer based befriending scheme for older people who are isolated and who live in Redbridge, Havering or Barking & Dagenham. This can be either via a weekly home visit or phone calls, Monday to Friday up to five times a week.

Do you know about the GP hubs? When you need to see a GP urgently but can't get an appointment with your GP you can see a doctor the same day at one of the hubs.
