We Care About Elderly People

Monthly Tea Parties

A Sunday outing is organised once a month for a group of twelve elderly guests. A typical afternoon would start with a sightseeing drive, followed by a tea party at the home of a volunteer hostess. Such parties provide our guests with the opportunity to chat together with one another and with our volunteers, play Bingo, or even participate in a "Sing Song".

Senior Citizen's Party and Health Clinic

Age-Link organises Senior Citizens’ Party and Health Clinic in April/May. We invite medical professionals to lecture to our elderly on topics such as Diabetes, Arthritis, Heart diseases. We also provide cultural entertainment.

Summer trips to the Seaside

Age-Link organises summer coach trips to seaside resorts. Sightseeing, lunch, and entertainment by local artists are also provided for our elderly guests.

Summer Boat trips

Age-Link organises sightseeing boat trips on the River Thames, again with lunch and local entertainment.

Christmas parties

In December Age-Link organises around four Christmas parties across London. The parties start with a reception, followed by a traditional Christmas lunch, a visit from Santa Claus bearing Christmas gifts, and multicultural entertainment.

Charity Walks

In Autumn Age-Link organises a Charity Walk to raise funds for our programmes. There has been overwhelming support from various organisations for this noble cause.

Testimonials

I have great admiration for all the people who give up so much of their time to help us and give us so much happiness. Their work is very much appreciated and I would like to say a big 'thank you!' to each one of them

May I say a big thank you for a lovely day! Everything was done well and may I thank all the helpers and drivers who took us …

Grateful thanks go to the many volunteer drivers who kindly call to our homes to collect us and are always happy and willing to do this for us. These outings are the only times that some of us are able to leave our homes and it is good to be in the fresh air.

I enjoy all outings and look forward to meeting friends and volunteers during these outings. I live alone, so it is an opportunity for me.

Who are we..?

Age-Link is a registered charity, established in 1975.
Our aim is to bring comfort to those elderly persons who may be lonely.
This may be because they are housebound, blind or partially blind, wheelchair bound, or living alone without family.

We have sixteen groups covering twenty three areas in Greater London, and we are very keen to extend our activities to other areas in order to help as many as possible.
Our volunteers come from all walks of life. We help approximately 500 disadvantaged pensioners, with the aid of 500 volunteers. Many of these dedicated volunteers have been with Age-Link for more than thirty years.

We also work with the organisations such as Rotary and Lions clubs, Sai Centres, schools, Girl Guide groups and other organisations.

Explained below, are the main activities in which Age-Link regularly engages.
