Winter is on the way

For many of us winter means new coats, hot chocolate, duvet days and festivities. But this isn’t the case for everyone. Some of our older neighbours will find this time of year troublesome and isolating, but through our Winter Wellbeing project we can provide support to help them tackle the cold.

"This community of older and younger neighbours... makes you want to celebrate": tales from 44 social clubs

Posted by Emily Campbell

Emily's been volunteering with South London Cares since April 2015, and has been part of 44 social clubs. She shares what keeps her coming back, and how community and friendship help with perspective: "You can’t hear about how a neighbour met the love of their life age 64 at ballroom dancing and still be worried that you might have accidentally ‘replied all’ on your last email of the day."
