About Us

Link Age Southwark is a vibrant local charity providing friendly volunteer support to over 500 isolated, older people in Southwark. We have been working in Southwark for over 23 years, reducing loneliness and isolation and helping older people maintain active lives within the community. Our fantastic volunteers support older people to thrive in later life, through:

  • One-to-one befriending visits
  • Activity groups with volunteer transport
  • Practical support including light gardening and help with odd jobs
  • Intergenerational work with local schools

Our services are free to all Southwark residents aged 60+, and we also offer specialist free support services for people of any age living with mild to moderate dementia. We are always looking for more volunteers to bring joy to the lives of older people.

Our Mission

Link Age Southwark helps older people stay connected with their communities, alleviating loneliness, improving health and wellbeing and making communities stronger through volunteering.

Our Values

We are positive

We bring joy, vitality and warmth to every setting we enter.

We have a ‘can do’ attitude

We encourage everyone to share their unique skills, talents, passions and experience with each other.

We are always connecting

We know that connecting with other people is critical to everyone’s wellbeing.

We respect the individual

We see the person, not their age and always truly listen to the person in front of us, seeking to understand their point of view.

We are not alone

We work in strong partnerships and link older people with our volunteers and with other services when that will help them and their communities thrive.
