Click Here to donate to our emergency Coronavirus Appeal:

In line with the latest advice in relation to Coronavirus, we are taking several measures to ensure that the older people we work with, as well as our staff and volunteers, remain safe at this difficult time.

We will continue running our services where it’s possible to safely do so – some will be run with modifications to ensure the safety and protection of all involved, and any changes to services will be communicated to our service users. We have taken the decision to suspend some of our group sessions, so if you are intending to come to a group session please check in with us first.

In addition to this, we are working with Love your Doorstep and a whole consortia of local charities and community groups to ensure we continue to support the most vulnerable. Please consider donating to help us in this work, and if you or anyone you know needs support please contact us on 020 8375 4120 or

We recognise that this is a highly anxious time for older people. Please see some of the links below for other sources of information, advice and support:
