Link Age Southwark offers friendly volunteer support to older people in Southwark, to combat loneliness and isolation.
We recently met with three of Link Age Southwark's volunteers, Alan, Susan and Martine, to find out what opportunities volunteering has given them. We also spoke to Jennie Linnett, their Senior Volunteer Coordinator, about how much the volunteers mean to Link Age. We created this short film about their stories:
"Volunteering, it's wonderful! I meet wonderful people who have gone through life."
"I enjoy the fact that people's spirits are lifted by singing and they look forward to the sessions so much."
"One hour of yout time means a lot to them."

"Link Age Southwark Volunteers are really important to us. We couldn't deliver our services without them."
