Many things can have an impact on our health and wellbeing and cause us stress and worry. MYcommunity can help by offering support, advice and assistance to help you get where you’d like to be.
MYsocial is a social membership service. It's all about helping people discover friendships, socialise, connect with their community, and do things that make them happy!
At Home With Age UK Lambeth provides practical help to enable people to continue to feel comfortable, safe and secure at home. We offer the carer quality time outside of their caring role to have space for themselves with peace of mind.
The MYneighbour service recognises the causes and consequences of isolation and we understand that tackling loneliness is about building communities with a social infrastructure that can help build resilience.
Our HandyFix team carries out minor repairs, improvements or adaptations to enable older people to maintain their independence and live in a warm, weather tight, safe and secure home.
Our Befriending Service is for older people who may feel socially isolated and lonely. Our main target client group is formed by the 40% of Lambeth residents (9,800) aged over 55 who live alone.
Hospital 2 Home
We focus on identifying and solving the practical problems that often hold up timely discharge of patients. Our Hospital 2 Home service helps older people to return home and stay supported after they have been in hospital.
We work with other organisations in Lambeth to generate benefits for older people through strengthening the community assets available to them. We want people to be able to take part in things that interest them as easily as possible.
At Age UK Lambeth we have a huge range of exciting volunteering opportunities available across the Lambeth borough. Our volunteers play a vital role in improving the wellbeing of a senior citizen.
Trasted Traders is an online directory that was developed to help protect older people from rogue traders by putting them in contacting with businesses that have all been checked and vetted by our staff.
Vida's, located in the heart of Brixton off Windrush Square, is fully accessible and has a hearing loop system. Its extensive programme offers a wide range of activities designed to help older people create and achieve goals for a happier life.
Connect Lambeth is a group of local charities working together to help some of Lambeth’s most vulnerable residents: Age UK Lambeth, Disability Advice Service Lambeth (including the Royal Association for the Deaf) and Carers Hub.
