Age UK Lambeth support older people in the borough of Lambeth to help them enjoy the second half of their life as much as possible. There are services to help people live as independently as possible such as advice sessions, coordination of health and social care services, repairs around the home and support when coming out of hospital. There are also services to reduce loneliness and isolation such as MYsocial which organises social events and befriending in people’s homes.

Did you know...

Age UK Lambeth is an independent, local charity helping older people in our community to live the later years of their lives to the fullest. The charity is proudly affiliated with the national Age UK charity, but they raise 99% of funds themselves with the kind support of their donors.

From the 1st April 2020 to the 31st March 2021, Age UK Lambeth had contact with over 70,000 clients. This increased from 21,000 clients in the previous year. COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdowns put huge pressure on the charity's services, especially those tackling loneliness and social isolation. They faced this challenge head on and expanded their services, helping everyone in the community who needed advice, housing support, health care, or just a friendly face to talk to.

Age UK Lambeth have been supporting older people in the community for over 70 years and, with your support, will continue to do so for 70 more

What makes Age UK Lambeth different?

We put older people in Lambeth at the heart of every decision we make. When we realised people would be alone at Christmas, we organised a Christmas Day lunch that is now in its third year. We are always looking for new and innovative ways to bring people together and reduce social isolation.

For example, their MYsocial service runs over 60 events every month for older people in the community to attend. Activities range from zumba lessons, to computer skills classes, to Friday film nights. They also run a befriending service where they pair an isolated elderly person with one of their amazing volunteers who visits them every week. They do everything they can to ensure no one in our community feels alone.

How can donations make an impact?

£10 could pay for one HandyFix team to make small changes to someone's house to help them live independently for as long as possible.

£30 could pay for the advice team to help someone complete a housing application to ensure they are not living in poverty.

£50 could pay for the MYsocial members to attend a free exercise class, enabling them to meet new people, stay active and avoid feeling isolated

Other ways to support

Age UK Lambeth is reliant on volunteers to help run the services. Important roles that always need to be filled are MYsocial hosts – attending social events to ensure everyone knows someone and helping people to mingle and Befrienders – spending an hour a week with an isolated older person to reduce their loneliness.
