Winter Wellbeing

05/10/2020

This year’s winter wellbeing project kicks off on the 5th of October.

Winter Wellbeing

Our annual Winter Wellbeing project, run in partnership with North London Cares, begins this October. Like lots of things the project will look a little different this year, with many more residents being reached out to over the phone.

This programme is for any residents in Camden and Islington over the age of 65. For help to stay warm, active, healthy and connected this winter they can contact North London Cares on 0207 118 3838 (option 3) or email emily.groves@northlondoncares.org.uk

From October 2020 to March 2021 North London Cares can:

  • Connect you to organisations who will help keep your home warm and safe, provide benefits and housing advice, and keep your bills low
  • Help you to access health services and advice on where to get a flu jab
  • Connect you with organisations to help with practical tasks like shopping and prescription pick-ups
  • Arrange small grants and warm items for people in difficult circumstances
  • Introduce you to friendly local groups and activities for fun and friendship, like North London Cares’ Social Clubs, currently held online and over the phone, and in person when safe to do so
  • Introduce you to a younger local for regular phone calls, visits, conversation and friendship
  • Provide advice and information on support available for those needing to self-isolate, NHS test and trace and other issues related to coronavirus

If you would like North London Cares to speak to your community group or organisation about this project, please contact emily.groves@northlondoncares.org.uk
