Keep Warm and Well in Winter Programme

Age UK Lewisham & Southwark’s Warm and Well in Winter (WWW) Programme provides support and advice for older people in Southwark on how to maintain their independence, safety, wellbeing and provide easy access to services to support vulnerable older people through the winter months.

As part of the project we have small grants available for local organisations and groups (including Tenants and Residents Associations and faith groups) towards the cost of one activity or event they would like to host in the community to reach vulnerable older people who live in Southwark this winter. Through the event or activity, the Warm and Well in Winter Programme team will be able to reach more older people and ensure they receive the information and support they need to keep well this winter.

Grants criteria

Spread The WarmGrants will only be awarded to organisations and groups that are based in Southwark and that work with older people, particularly those with pre-existing and long-term illnesses and chronic medical conditions; including dementia, learning disabilities, enduring mental health problems, arthritis, limited mobility or otherwise at risk of falls, or who, are living in deprived circumstances including those at risk of fuel poverty or at risk of social isolation.

  • reduce social isolation amongst older vulnerable people and
