Age UK South Lakeland Helpline
Our helpline is for all of your questions and problems. It’s also a ‘one-stop shop’
for you to reach the rest of our services.
What is available?
A dedicated phone number and specialist officers to take each call in confidence. We’ll make sure that everything’s covered so you get the right information and advice. And we’re often able to give answers and solutions there and then.
We get calls about so many things and we deal with hundreds of different questions. If needed, we’ll arrange for one of our community officers to make a follow-up call. Or we might decide, together, that it would be better for a partnership organisation to get in touch.
Call us on 030 300 30003

• Advocacy service
Funded by the Cabinet Ofﬁce, Compass has the simple but ambitious objective of reducing pressure on hospitals caused by avoidable emergency admissions. To do this effectively we need to identify clients most at risk of emergency admissions. Our experience of delivering prevention services and latterly Social Prescribing means we know that whilst the client’s health is a prime indicator of “risk” we need to consider the whole picture – a 360 degree view.
