How Age UK Lewisham & Southwark helps older people in winter
This winter 2014/15 Age UK Lewisham and Southwark is working hard with Age UK Lambeth to help older people keep warm and well throughout the winter in a number of ways. During the Warm & Well in Winter project we will be providing the following services in Southwark:

- We provide free information and advice to ease financial worries, and help older people to feel warm and well.
- Our handypeople provide help with practical tasks around the home.
- We offer shopping support so those with mobility issues can get what they need.
