About Us

 

Ageing Well in Lewisham encourages over 60s to live fuller, more connected lives through programmes that foster friendship and creativity.

Although our in-person programmes are paused due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are still dedicated to helping older Lewisham residents feel connected to their community. Our homepage has info about what we're offering and other resources available during these difficult times.

We can also be reached by email or phone (0208 698 3735), but please be aware that we are operating on restricted hours. Thank you!

Who are Ageing Well in Lewisham?

 

Since 1999, Ageing Well has worked to enhance the quality of life of vulnerable older people in Lewisham, especially those who are isolated due to physical or cognitive challenges. Our programmes increase mental and physical well-being through activities that encourage social interaction, mobility and creativity.

 

We operate as a project of Lewisham Churches Care, a registered charity supported by dedicated team of Trustees. Our programmes are run by our core staff and session leaders, with the immeasurable help of our volunteers.

If you or a loved one would like information, support, or even just a friendly phone call, please fill out this form and we will be in touch.

 

Or call us on 0208 698 3735. *Please be patient as staff are not in the office as frequently right now.*
