    Ageing Well in Lewisham-LCC is a small registered charity, founded in 1999, that provides support and befriending services to people aged 55+ living in south Lewisham in south east London.
    A small staff team provides individual support to help people access services that will improve their quality of life and help them to maintain their independence living in their own home.
    We assist clients to access transport to enable older people to attend tutor led groups in their local community where they can share an activity, learn a new skill or join an exercise group and make new friends, helping to reduce social isolation and improve their physical and mental health and quality of life.
    We identify referral pathways for individuals who require additional support.
