Age UK Lambeth

Age UK Lambeth is an independent local charity working in the community to support older people, their families and their carers. We want to support people in the second half of their life to make it as full, enjoyable and active as possible. We help tackle loneliness and social isolation by pairing up our older service users with volunteers who visit them each week, by putting on over 60 social events a month for people to attend, and by giving them the advice and support they need.

What Age UK Lambeth Has Been Up To in 2021!

Hello,

Well, what a year it's been!

Over the past year, the difficulties presented by COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdowns have seen demand for Age UK Lambeth’s services increase by 233%. In 2019-20 we had 21,000 contacts with clients. From April 2020 to March 2021, this number had risen to over 70,000. This put a lot of pressure on our resources, but we did not let that stop us from helping those who needed us. 

Our team of amazing staff and volunteers did, and are still doing, everything they could to ensure we helped every single client who needed us. Our staff really do go above and beyond to help everyone who needs us. Last month, one of our staff members helped a housebound client mark his wedding anniversary. Every year he buys a balloon and a card and writes a message for his late wife, and sets the balloon off. This year, he was unable to do that by himself, but our incredible staff member bought the balloon and set it off with him.

Our volunteers have also been incredible. Recently, one of our lovely befriending volunteers helped his phone friend (who he calls every week) who had been waiting a long time for a council ramp. Our volunteer and his friend went round and built a ramp themselves, so this older man could go outside through his back door and see his garden for the first time in a long time.

It's examples like this that remind us all at Age UK Lambeth that small acts of kindness can go a really long way.

It is also individuals like these who need our support that drives us every day to raise more money to help more people. This year, we have already organised a skydive, a half marathon, a raffle and launched a limited edition charity beer - and it's only June!

If any of the amazing businesses on Work For Good would like to support us, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Your support will enable us to help more individuals to live the later years of their lives to the fullest. We do everything we can to tackle loneliness and social isolation, to help people live independent lives, to provide support and advice and much more.

Thank you,

The Age UK Lambeth Team!
