How we are funded

We rely on your support to keep serving the community. We are supported by donations from the public, income from funders, and some charitable grants.

What we do

  • We give advice

    Our trained advisors offer free information and advice to older people and their families. In the last year, our advisers helped local older people to claim over £1,200,000 that they were entitled to.

  • We offer home help

    We offer home support services to help with odd jobs around the home, housekeeping and gardening.

  • We help with technology

    We help people get to grips with new technology, such as tablets, smartphones and laptops.  This helps make life easier for some older people in accessing services and keeping in touch with friends and family.

  • We provide activities

    We offer a wide range of activities to give older people the opportunity to keep fit, socialise, or learn a new skill. Our  Community Services team provide activities borough wide or you can join one of our three busy Social and Wellbeing centres in Barnes, Whitton or Twickenham.
