About us

Who we are

Age UK Lambeth is an independent local charity. We've been working in the local community to help older people for over 70 years. We have about 80 dedicated staff and over 400 volunteers helping us to deliver services and activities for older people in Lambeth.

Our culture and values

Where we’ve come from…

 

Over the last few years, we have worked hard to ensure we are building on strong foundations. We are confident that our policies are fit for purpose. We have re-focused our services to be the best that they can be for the people we serve. Most importantly, we have reminded ourselves to put the older person at the heart of everything we do.

 

Where we are…

 

The need for services focused on Care and Support remains strong, and so does our commitment to providing those services. So many of our older people want to remain independent, but find their health declining and worry about being “put into care”. Some are profoundly lonely, often using the television as their main point of contact with the outside world. We will continue to respond to the needs of those who ask us for help by developing and providing services that are right for them.

 

Where we’re going…

 

Our society is changing. And our society’s approach to ageing is changing, too. We have to keep up. There is a generation of people in their fifties and sixties who are still working full time, many of whom have adult children still living at home and elderly parents needing care. There has been an increase in unemployment for those over the age of 50. Acute feelings of loneliness and isolation are not necessarily age-related, especially in a big city like London, and a busy borough like Lambeth. These issues challenge us to think differently. And we’re confident that changed thinking will lead to the development of some new services over the life of this strategy. That’s also why our other strategic goal of Ageing Well is so important.
