Help for People Aged 50+

If you are over 50, we support you to make the most of later life by connecting, advising and enabling you to achieve ageing that is fulfilling, independent and socially active.

How We Help

  • Talking One-to-One

    Everything we do starts with a conversation and we listen long and hard to ensure we fully understand your issue.
  • Talking to You in Your Community

    Whether you’re resolving a housing problem or navigating your way around the health service, having someone who can come and visit you can really help.
  • Talking to You in Groups

    The opportunity to meet like-minded people who share an interest is a refreshing experience, especially if you have felt isolated and lonely before.
  • Connecting You to our Partners

    We have a large number of excellent partner organisations offering regular events, assistance and on-going advice.

How we Helped Others

  • Isaac Bamgbose

    “I’m someone who doesn’t sit at home…coming to a Get Together means you meet new friends again, and are adding to the people that know you. Sometimes I see people in the street who I’ve met at Get Togethers!”
  • Ella Davies

    “Ideally I’d like to get every old person out, instead of them sitting at home looking at four walls. No one has to be lonely. Get Togethers are something to look forward to, and there are so many things going on in Islington.”
