Out & About service

Out & About service in Wandsworth

What does it do?

The Out & About service provides occasional trips out to local places with the assistance of volunteers for older people who are housebound and are at risk of isolation. This service is limited as it is delivered by volunteers but we aim to provide these outings to increase older people's contact within the community.

Trips out could include:

  • A walk in a local park
  • One-off shopping trips
  • An outing to deal with personal business, for instance to the bank or hairdresser
  • Doctor’s and dentist’s appointments
  • A trip to the cinema or a coffee shop

The service, which is free, offers customers greater choice and independence, increasing their capacity to deal with their own affairs and to go to where they want at a time to suit them.
