what we offer

Vision Statement: 

To create an inclusive community where neighbours look out and care for each other

Mission Statement: 

We enrich the lives of older people and people with disabilities living in Fulham by providing practical help and creating opportunities to:

- Contribute to society; - Connect with others; and - Live life to the fullest  

Our projects aim to reduce the impact of older people's concerns raised in the 2019 local Older People’s Commission.  These related mainly to: access to services; loneliness and isolation; and poverty and deprivation.  

Our projects also keep in mind, the 2017 Index For Wellbeing in Later Life (Age UK and University of Southampton) which found:
-    Meaningful engagement, whether through social, creative or physical activity, contributes over 20% to an individual’s sense of wellbeing in later life;
-    Creative and cultural participation contributes most significantly to wellbeing (out of 40 indicators); and
-    Physical activity was the second highest factor
