Age UK Lewisham & Southwark is always working to improve later life for many older people who face common challenges with care, illness, isolation and finance.
We provide a wide variety of services in the Boroughs of Lewisham and Southwark including day care, healthy living, information and advice, outreach and volunteering. These services are mostly available to anyone aged 50 and over, though a small number of services are only available to over 65s.
We are very passionate about delivering services that empower and support the needs of the most vulnerable and isolated older members of our community.
