Age UK Solihull is responding to the Coronavirus Pandemic and is continuing to support older people in our local communities. The way in which we deliver our services will need to adapt in this challenging time but older people and their health and wellbeing is at the forefront of everything we do.
Sadly we have needed to close our four clubs but we are stepping up telephone contact with those who are lonely and isolated.
The Home Support Service is continuing to support those most vulnerable in their own homes and has stringent hygiene measures in place.
The Community Advice Hubs are both now closed for drop-ins, but we are still providing information and advice by telephone, email, or if absolutely necessary, face-to-face appointment. Please call 0121 709 7590 or email email@example.com for help. We will still offer services such as benefit form completion, debt advice, and health and wellbeing advice, but this will be carried out primarily by telephone.
The Age UK Solihull main line is open 9.00am – 4.00pm Monday to Friday and we are redeploying staff to ensure we can answer more calls. If you are an older person who needs information, advice, additional support or maybe just a chat please contact Age UK Solihull on 0121 704 7840.
Age UK Solihull has always received fantastic support from our local communities and we ask that you continue to do this. Think about volunteering - could you spare a little time to speak to an older person each week? We also need donations to be able to purchase older people the things they need when they can’t get out to do this for themselves or can’t get access to cash. And we need hand sanitiser gel for our workers working in older people's homes. If you can help contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will keep our website updated.
Can you help us continue to support vulnerable people in Solihull, who need us now more than ever?
