What is available?
Age UK South Lakeland Helpline
Our helpline is a ‘one-stop shop’ for all of your questions and problems which will also help you to reach the rest of our services.
A dedicated phone number and specialist officers take each call in confidence. We will make sure that everything is covered so you receive the most appropriate information and advice and we are often able to give answers and solutions there and then.
We receive calls about a wide range of topics and we deal with hundreds of different questions. If needed, we will arrange for one of our Officers to make a follow-up call, or decide together, that it would be better for a partnership organisation to get in touch.

Our Information and Advice Service
Compass has the simple but ambitious objective of reducing pressure on hospitals caused by avoidable emergency admissions. To do this effectively we need to identify clients most at risk of emergency admissions. Our experience of delivering prevention services and latterly Social Prescribing means we know that whilst the client’s health is a prime indicator of “risk” we need to consider the whole picture – a 360 degree view.
