About Linkage Plus

LinkAge Plus is a free service for anyone over the age of 50 living in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. We aim to help older people achieve a better quality of life, improve their physical and mental well-being and overcome social isolation through the provision of activities and an outreach service.
Anyone over the age of 50 can be referred by a professional, a friend or family member or they can self-refer. They will be met or visited by a trained assessor who will work with them to understand their welfare support requirements. From there, each individual will receive a tailored plan to include:
1. Activities to support physical and mental welfare e.g. physical exercise, arts classes, quizes, cookery, health talks, social groups etc.and
2. Signposting to services outside of Linkage Plus which will further support the welfare of the older person.
The plan will continued to be reviewed by the individual and our team of professionals to ensure it continues to meet their needs.
