We are absolutely delighted with the feedback we received from our 2017 Service User survey. The older people who use our services told us that Link Age Southwark has a profound impact on their quality of life. Our services make them feel less lonely and improve their general wellbeing.
- 92% of our older people are happy or very happy with our services
- 88% wouldn’t change anything about our services
- 85% of our older people say they feel less lonely, 80% enjoy life more and 74% feel better connected to their local community
- 74% get out of the house more and 70% are better able to manage living in their own home.
Whether it be through meeting new people and making friends, getting out of the house more or simply having something to look forward to each week, our services are helping older people to thrive.
The results of the survey are hugely encouraging and we hope to continue making a difference to the lives of older people in the local community of Southwark.
We couldn’t do any of this without the work of our fantastic volunteers. If you would like to get involved please see our volunteering opportunities or if you know someone who would be interested, please spread the word about us.
Alternatively, if you know someone over the age of 60 who might benefit from getting out of the house more, meeting new people and maybe trying something new, please get in touch.
