New Year support and services

The New Year has arrived and it is business as usual here at Age UK Bexley. As we provide essential services, we can continue to operate under the new lockdown guidelines. We will continue to be offering a range of support and services into the New Year. Our team follows strict government health and safety guidelines to help keep you as safe as possible.

Current Covid-19 restrictions: Which services are still running?

We know how hard this winter has been for older people, and we are still open and offering a range of support and services.

We have robust risk assessment processes to ensure that we comply with all our legislative obligations. Here are our services that are currently running under the new lockdown rules:

Foot Care 

Our Foot Care service is running with strict covid-19 regulations in place. Appointments must be booked in advance and are available at both our Sidcup and Belvedere centres.

Day Care  

Our Day Care service will be open again from Monday 11th January 2021, and adhering to government safety advice. We have launched a new day care service, with flexible packages to suit your needs.

Activities 

We are running online fitness classes to help keep you in shape, and digital cafes where you can socialise and meet like-minded people.

Under current guidelines, we will not be running any indoor activities, group walks, or group cycles. The Shed will also be closed, however, online activities will be ongoing.

Telephone Befriending

If you, or someone you know, is in need of a friendly chat over the phone, please get in touch. Our telephone befriending service will continue to operate.

Welfare Advice and Information Services 

If you need any information or advice, don’t hesitate to contact us. While we won’t be able to meet you face-to-face, we are available online or by telephone.
