South London Cares is a community organisation covering Lambeth and Southwark. They bring people aged over 65 together with their younger neighbours in their 20s and 30s for fun, friendship, and laughter at over 20 free social clubs every month. From quiz clubs to salsa dancing, and museum visits to technology workshops, there is something for everyone.
If you’re unable to get out and about but would like more company, South London Cares matches people, aged 65 and over, with a younger volunteer for weekly visits over a cuppa through their Love Your Neighbour programme.
From October – March they will also be running their Winter Wellbeing project where they can support people over 65 who may be struggling with the cold by delivering blankets and other warm items, supporting people whose circumstances are particularly difficult with winter grants, and connecting people up with organisations and opportunities close by.
