Age UK Lewisham and Southwark provide a wide range of services to support older people's independence and wellbeing. As you grow older there are many factors in life that can become challenging. We aim to support the needs of the most vulnerable, socially excluded and isolated older members of the community. We do this by delivering a range of preventative solutions to negate potential emotional, financial and physical challenges that may accompany ageing. We support thousands of older people who are challenged with issues including illness, poverty as well as poor physical health and wellbeing. We also support people who are isolated and suffer from mental health distress such as depression or alcohol dependency. We can supply people with knowledge about the services and benefits entitled to them.
