Wandsworth Older People

Supporting people aged 55+ to live independently at home

What does it do?

As everyone is different, with their own individual needs, our service is completely flexible. We will provide you with the support that is right for you, taking the stress out of all kinds of practical things.

You can attend our regular local drop in sessions, or access group sessions that focus on particular issues.

When you need it, we can also arrange for you to receive up to 3 months of support from a dedicated team of support workers.

We can help with practical support, for example:

    - Putting you in touch with charities, health and social services
    - Accessing community and cultural groups that you may be interested in
    - Accessing education, training, employment and volunteering opportunities
    - Ensuring you get all the financial support that you’re entitled to
    - Supporting you to find reliable services you may need
    - Managing your bills and debts
    - Making sure your home and living environment are safe
    - Accessing aids & adaptations, as well as transport services to keep you independent at home and in the community

We work in partnership with:
NHS, Social services, Carers and relatives, Statutory agencies, Voluntary agencies, Outreach services, Cultural Groups
