Together we provide a range of services that can support people in need. Support includes information and advice, advocacy for people in difficulty, help and advice with direct payments, assistance in filling out forms and claiming a full entitlement of benefits, support for unpaid carers, a befriending service and community development. The ILCP is also one of the best places in Lambeth to volunteer, with a range of opportunities on offer for people to give back to the community and gain valuable new experience.
Link Age Southwark provides volunteer support to older people feeling lonely or isolated in Southwark. We run a befriending service where a volunteer visits an older person for one hour, once a week, in their own home. We also run 24 exercise and activity groups across the borough ranging from gentle chair based exercise to singing, bridge to reminiscence. Link Age Southwark also provides regular volunteer transport and light DIY and gardening tasks.
Arts 4 Dementia (A4D) signposts arts workshops and events across the UK for people living with dementia and their companions. These can be found on the A4D website. A4D also partners with arts organisations across London to provide arts opportunities to empower people affected by dementia in the community (typically, these are a series of 8-10 workshops).
South London Cares is a community organisation of people aged 65 and over who get together with their neighbours, in their 20s and 30s, to share time, friendship and fun across Lambeth and Southwark. We have around 20-25 Social Clubs every month, held across the two boroughs, including; dances, technology workshops, chair yoga and visits to local galleries and museums. Every clubs is completely free to attend all you need to do is call us up to let us know you're coming. If you're interested in meeting a younger neighbour, but perhaps can't get out and about, we can match you up, one-to-one, with a volunteer through our Love Your Neighbour programme. Once you're matched up with a volunteer they would visit weekly for a catch up and a cuppa. Every winter, from October - March we run our Winter Wellbeing project where we hope to help people, aged over 65 in Lambeth and Southwark, keep warm, active, healthy and connected. We can deliver blankets and warm items to your door, if you're feeling the cold. We have Winter Grants for people facing difficult circumstances over the winter months and we work closely with other organisations who can help with benefits advice and energy saving.
The choir is unique as it's focus is to support stroke survivors following their stroke. Members of the choir have said how important it has been for their recovery and self-esteem and if it wasn't available, they would not be able to join a mainstream choir due to the symptoms of stroke which can impact on an individual’s sense of wellbeing and confidence due to loss of speech function (aphasia); loss of motor control and loss of income.
Sing 4ALL is a fun and friendly community choir for the over-60s. Led by an experienced and friendly musician, we meet every Tuesday afternoon to sing everything from folk, pop and gospel to musicals. We're a friendly group of people and are always delighted to welcome new members.
