Our response to coronavirus

Can you help us continue to help isolated older people during these difficult times?

Welcome to Age UK Westminster

We are an independent charity supporting older people in Westminster for over 70 years. Our services aim to empower older people to understand their rights and lead more fulfilling and socially active lives.

We are beginning to have some in-person activities, following the government's Covid-19 guidelines. We are also running many online events. 

The coronavirus meant that Age UK Westminster had to adapt quickly to meet the changing needs of our service users. We introduced emergency food deliveries, online activities, prepared meal deliveries, check and chat calls along with befriending and IT skills training. Our information and advice lines have never been busier.

These service changes have been made possible due to the generosity of some very kind donors. If you would like to help us continue the efforts of our COVID response please donate to our Just Giving page. All funds raised for our COVID appeal will go directly to helping older people through this crisis.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) support for older people in Westminster

The Coronavirus has meant that Age UK Westminster has had to expand its’ activities to provide more personal social contact and delivery services to needy older residents in Westminster than ever before.

 

We have over 400 known, isolated, older people who need support and the number is growing. An appeal for additional volunteers has resulted in us being able to double the usual number of these invaluable people.

Important Notice:

 

Due to the ongoing concerns about the Coronavirus and the impact it may have on vulnerable people, Age UK Westminster have taken the decision to temporarily suspend home visits and group activities with immediate effect.  We will be reviewing this every few days. 

 

Due to Coronavirus we are having to provide our Information and Advice service over the phone and have also extended our Information and Advice line and will now be open between 10am - 4pm (Monday - Friday) taking your calls. 

 

We will keep you posted on any further developments.
