Want to get out for a social lunch, or need help with shopping and cooking? We can help you find lunch clubs, meal delivery services and support with shopping.
We can provide you with details of lunch clubs in Islington. These are available in community centres around the borough. They usually provide a cooked, hot meal and the opportunity to meet other local people.
Support with shopping
Finding it difficult to get to the shops? We can connect you to volunteers who can get a small amount of shopping for you or let you know about available delivery options from local supermarkets. If you have access to a smartphone, tablet or pc, one of our digital volunteers can help you to set-up an online shop. There are a number of meal delivery services that you can pay for.
There are a network of Food Banks around Islington that can help if you are struggling to afford food. If you are struggling financially, Age UK Islington can help connect you to a benefit check and other sources of support - contact our helpline on 020 7281 6018. Many of the Food Banks also provide Food Co-ops or Pop-Up Stores which can help you save money on your weekly shop.
