What we do

We provide independent information, guidance and support to enable local people to build skills, friendship, networks and confidence to achieve their goals.

We help local people over 50 to:

  • make life better
  • meet new people or reconnect with their community
  • build skills and confidence
  • live independently and safely in their own homes
  • find places to go and things to do

People who are in need or support or friendship can refer themselves directly to us. Our offer won't be right for everyone, but if it's not we'll ensure that the right kind of support is found. We also accept referrals from local organisations, groups, family and friends. 

Reach and Connect is delivered by eight 'Community Connectors' from a range of community settings in Haringey. Our eight Community Connectors work across the north, south, east and west of Haringey and cover all the wards.

Telephone friendship and support

Through The Silver Line, the only free, confidential helpline specifically for lonely and isolated older people, we are able to offer telephone friendship and support 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
