Community Support Service
Our Community Support Service has developed over the years to be a highly regarded, culturally specific service to older Irish people living in and around the vicinity of Southwark.
Through this service, we support very vulnerable and isolated elderly people including people with substance use issues.
The service comprises assertive outreach and community support workers who visit clients at home, in care homes, hospitals etc offering advice, information, advocacy and who work with each pensioner through whatever issues arise. This team of workers have a great deal of expertise and they are dedicated to our pensioners ensuring they achieve the best possible outcome for them.
We also have a team of volunteer befrienders who visit our pensioners in their own homes or in care homes and they make a real difference to their lives. And we have a small team of volunteers who visit our pensioners when they are in hospital when they often do not have family living close by who can advocate on their behalf.
