Age UK Lambeth

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 proudly affiliated to national Age UK which provides some support services and just over 1% of the annual income, the rest of which is raised in the local area with the kind support of donors.

Last year Age UK Lambeth helped 17,000 people across Lambeth.

Their MYsocial events are open to all ages to encourage intergenerational socialising.

The charity have been supporting older people in the borough for 70 years.

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.

How can donations make an impact?

£5 will send out three information packs to people who wish to continue living independently.

£10 will guarantee a consultation meeting with an older person providing essential and reassuring advice.

£50 will provide fun dance class for older people enabling them to socialise and keep their brains and bodies healthy whilst having fun.

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.
