Delivering high-quality social care

Making services more accessible for the over 60s


Lewisham Council

Lewisham Council runs the Safe and Independent Living Connections (SAIL) programme. A series of accessible questions on a checklist means SAIL provides a quick and simple way for over 60s to access a wide range of local services. Through completing the checklist, residents can access a wide range of support services that improve health and wellbeing, mental resilience, social isolation, financial inclusion, fire safety, home security, safeguarding and personal safety and security. Over an 18-month period, SAIL Connections has received 1,063 SAIL checklists and supported 926 older people.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
