We have made vital changes to our services to ensure the safety of the older people and volunteers we work with. Social distancing and lockdown measures have had a huge impact on the services we can deliver to our older friends, the important roles played by our volunteers, and the way that we work day-to-day.
Since March last year, the older people we support have experienced feelings of increased isolation as their regular activities remain cancelled. To ensure that we are helping them through this time and meeting their additional needs, we have adapted and increased our service provision to include the following:
We are still accepting referrals of people who are aged 60 years and over and living within the London borough of Southwark. We are calling each person referred to us to assess their individual needs and how we can support them at this time.
Our mission is to help older people in our community feel less lonely. This has not changed, we have simply had to adapt how we achieve our mission to ensure the safety of those who matter most to us; our service users and volunteers. Support us by donating to our Coronavirus Response Appeal.
If you would like any further information about our services or volunteering opportunities, please call us on 020 8299 2623.
If you know a person living in Southwark who needs urgent support please contact Southwark Council as soon as possible by:
