We are very passionate about delivering services that empower and support the needs of the most vulnerable and isolated older members of our community.

Our mission

Age UK Lewisham and Southwark exists to improve life for older people, especially those who are frail. We believe that to be effective we must operate on a big enough scale that we can make a significant difference and be influential with both boroughs and other providers.

We believe that being involved in the provision of services qualifies us to comment on the performance of others on the basis of actual knowledge and relevant experience.

Our values

To seek to ensure the highest quality of life for older people in need of support

To enable the voices of the full range of older people to be heard

To enable older people to contribute to community life and prosperity

To bring state of the art approaches to work with and for older people

To ensure the highest quality standards of governance, leadership and management of Age UK Lewisham and Southwark
