Link Age Southwark
Link Age Southwark is a vibrant local charity that provides friendly volunteer support to people over 60 across the London Borough of Southwark. Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organisation. We link older people with volunteer befrienders and we organise social and activity groups (including for people with dementia) that meet regularly in the community. We work with local schools to deliver inter-generational activities and we provide volunteer drivers, gardening and odd job service.
Information for volunteers
Are you a friendly person? A good listener? Our volunteer befrienders regularly visit an older person to offer one-to-one friendship and social contact. That could be a cup of tea, helping with shopping or reading a newspaper together. We also support people with mild to moderate dementia and provide training for those volunteer befrienders.
