Friday, 14 June, 2019

Age UK Redbridge, Barking and Havering is delighted to have been successful in securing a grant from the National Lottery Community Fund, for £10,000 to support more older people who are lonely or isolated through our Forget me Not Befriending service.

The service supports around 270 older people a month at present across the three boroughs and this extra money will enable them to push that number to over 300 older people who will receive telephone calls and/or visits.
