Delivering high-quality social care
Making services more accessible for the over 60s
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.
