“There is growing evidence that the right interventions at the right time can yield financial benefits to the taxpayer as well as benefits to older people”(Davis and Ritters, 2009)
Since 2006 LinkAge Plus has been able to help and support over 7,000 older people in Tower Hamlets through;
- Physical and Social activities
