Local charity expanding services for over-60s
Link Age Southwark is recruiting new volunteers to organise social activities for over-60s in Southwark. The charity, which has been based in East Dulwich for 23 years, offers activity groups, befriending visits, transport to social activities and light DIY help around the home and garden for older residents of Southwark.
All services are volunteer-led and the charity is always looking for new volunteers to help older residents maintain their social life and prevent isolation.
Richard, 53, who visits two older gentlemen weekly, says, “They both appreciate my company and the chance to talk to somebody. They look forward to my visits, and I look forward to them too. I’ve made two new friends.”
