We provide opportunities for older people in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames to build social networks, learn new skills and improve wellbeing. These opportunities help older people live more independent and healthier lives.
Activities for all
Our activities take place at a range of locations including our three Age UK Richmond social & wellbeing centres in Barnes, Twickenham and Whitton and in a wide range of other locations across the Borough.
There are two ways to use our Wellbeing Services:
Centre Membership: Pay a small annual membership fee of £23 – 40 to join one of our three social centres. Most activities and sessions also have small charges.
Pay as you go: Use the wide range of activities & sessions we run at other locations apart from our social & wellbeing centres on a pay as you go basis. You will not be able to use most of the activities and sessions that take place at our centres, as they are restricted to centre members.
Our Wellbeing Services form part of a wider partnership of 20 local charities supporting adults of all ages to live independently, improve wellbeing and stay connected with their local community- led by Age UK Richmond.
This is called the Community Independent Living Service (CILS).
Therefore, when you contact us we can suggest wellbeing services delivered by our partners as well as our own- and put you in contact.
This could include a social centre more local to you; befriending; transport or specialist support for dementia, disabilities, neurological conditions and mental health.
To get involved, please contact our Wellbeing Team on 020 8744 1965 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Alternatively, visit one of our three social & wellbeing centres in Twickenham, Barnes or Whitton.
