Concerned about coronavirus?

There are simple, effective things we can all do to reduce our risk of catching coronavirus or transmitting the virus to other people.

Would you like to help older people during the Coronavirus outbreak?

We are compiling a register of people able to help. In the longer term if older people are self isolating we will also be looking for volunteers to act as telephone befrienders – calling an older person to check on their welfare, perhaps do some shopping but importantly providing someone to talk to during what is likely to be a very lonely time.

If you are looking to help with shopping or telephone befriending please complete this form »

We will get back to you, please bear with us during this very busy time.

AGE UK Promotional Video

We have been working with Leyton Sixth Form College media students who have made a promotional video of the work we do.
