Winter Wellbeing 2017/18 – the final report

Posted by Elyssa Kill

For the fourth year running, South London Cares has delivered our ambitious Winter Wellbeing project – a pro-active outreach effort to help our older neighbours in Southwark and Lambeth stay warm, active, healthy and connected during the most isolating time of year. We reached 1,420 people and made 715 interventions: find out how we made it happen.
