Link Age Southwark is a successful, award winning, vibrant, local charity providing support to over 600 people over 60 in Southwark through its free volunteer services including: befriending; activity groups; transport and light gardening and DIY. Link Age Southwark also provide specialist support to people of all ages with a diagnosis of mild to moderate dementia, with dedicated groups and befriending on offer. Over 500 volunteers are engaged in providing this support and other activities on behalf of Link Age Southwark.
