Winter weather

Elderly and vulnerable residents

Following the success of the Warm & Well in Winter programme over the last three years, Age UK Lewisham and Southwark is pleased to continue to offer this programme in partnership with Southwark CCG for Southwark residents this winter. The project aims to help older people keep warm and well throughout the winter in a number of ways. During the Warm & Well in Winter project Age UK will be providing the following services in Southwark:

  • free information and advice to ease financial worries, and help older people to feel warm and well
  • handypeople to provide help with practical tasks around the home
  • free winter warmer packs (content varies each year) – includes a keep warm in winter guidebook and posters. Previous years packs have included blankets, hand warmers, and slipper slocks
  • onward referrals to relevant organisations such as befriending, energy saving services as part of supporting those affected by fuel poverty, and providing practical support to help retain heat in the home
