Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

ACTIVITY CENTRE CLOSURE

Due to the coronavirus outbreak and following the government recommendation that everyone should stop non-essential contact with others and travel. This is particularly important for people over 70, those with underlying health conditions and pregnant women. Age UK Hammersmith and Fulham has decided to close the activity centre whilst the government recommendations remain in place. 

We will still be running the following services as outlined below: 

  • Information and Advice - Appointments will take place over the telephone instead of at our centre. To book, call: 020 7386 9085 
  • Shopping Service - Our shopping service is still running and can be booked by calling 020 7386 9085
  • In Touch Befriending -  Our befriending service will be carried out over the phone rather than home visits. For enquiries about this service please email: emily@ageukhf.org.uk or call our main number on  020 7386 9085
  • Digital Inclusion Project - Our Digital Champions are available to provide 1-2-1 digital support over the phone. To book, call: 020 7386 9085 or email: digital@ageukhf.org.uk 

For further updates call us on 020 7386 9085.

“The growth of the computer has made a difference to a great many lives.  Age UK H&F provide help with computers so you can make contact with friends and relatives, also if you want to book tickets for a show. There’s lots of benefit and fun, and you can download music too.” Barry, 80 from Sands End

Case Study: Robin

 My hour with John today, helping with my laptop and accessing social media, was excellent! John is so calm and clear whilst being very friendly and professional, a great volunteer indeed. I have booked two further sessions with him over the next two weeks and am looking forward to becoming far more proficient with my social media accounts for the very first time.”  ....Says Robin, Age UK H&F Member.

Case Study: Kevin

"I've been visiting Age UK H&F and learning simple things on my mobile and tablet like how to turn it off and on, YouTube and watching videos. There's lots more to learn but with practise you can get there. I'm very glad that I got the phone and now I'm learning about the tablet too. It was difficult at first but practise makes perfect. I surprised myself by the knowledge I've learnt already. You can learn one bit at a time.

The people at Age UK that train you are very experienced and helpful. They've been patient and are good at explaining. Without their help I wouldn't be where I am today, they've been a great help to me. I'd recommend anyone to go for it, you're never too old to learn, I'm 81."
