Age UK Lewisham and Southwark’s ethos is to empower older people to make choices and take control of their lives and support, with our overall aim being to improve life for older people, especially those who are vulnerable and frail.
We are passionate about delivering services that match our ethos and currently provide a wide variety of services ranging from complex care services to smaller projects, with the aim to negate the financial, emotional and physical challenges that can arise in later life.
Practical services and regular support to help older people live independently and safely at home. Services for people aged 50+ including: a handyperson service; support to find new activities, exercise classes, clubs and day care; free home fire safety visits; benefits advice; shopping, housework and toenail cutting and much more.
These services aim to improve physical and mental wellbeing, promote an active lifestyle and reduce isolation. Activities range from chair-based exercises, seated games and arts & crafts to swimming, Tai-Chi, skills learning and day trips.
