Our Commitment to Safeguarding the Health of All Clients & Staff

Wise age is committed to safeguarding the health of all our staff and clients. Therefore we will ask everyone to wash their hands and have tissues with them before all 121 or group support sessions 

We ask anyone feeling unwell or having a cough to let us know and not come in person to any session.

We will be happy to set up 121 sessions by phone or Skype between our consultants and clients instead of face to face arranged meetings . Please contact us to arrange this. Please read further information in the below link:

Wise Age ( or PAiL) wishes all our members, clients and volunteers the best of health on these worrying times. Please click on this link to get up to date advice from Age UK about what to do about coronavirus.

Make sure you are prepared for self isolation at home if necessary. Wash hands for 20 seconds after you go out, clean surfaces that anyone touches, stay 2 meters away from others and if you can get a mask and gloves. If feeling unwell with coronavirus symptoms stay at home. If it persists contact 111. If you are elderly or have a health condition let them know so that if appropriate you can be tested or get medical attention.

We wish everyone the best of health and luck.

Older People and the General Election

We are working with other age organisations to try to produce key recommendations and concerns relating to older people that we hope maybe useful for you to raise with potential candidates. In the meantime please go to the Age UK website (https://www.ageuk.org.uk/our-impact/campaigning/general-election-2019) to see their election manifesto for older people, which may give you some inspiration. If you have key concerns that relate directly to the situation of older working age people (50- 66+) and working pensioners (66+) please send them to us at this site.

Wise Age Awarded New Contracts

Wise Age is now moving towards the successful completion of its 2 contracts with the DWP in East London (Hackney and Tower Hamlets). We have nearly completed our 80 registration of starts for both our contract to help over 50s into work and also for our contract Helping those 50+ furthest away from the job market get ready for work.  We are also pleased that nearly all of our candidates are now nearing the completion of their support programme. We are on course to reach our target of getting people into work and hope that as usual we can exceed this target.

Besides the 80 people we have registered and are helping we have also recruited and offered support through 121s and group training to many more since the programme started in March this year. The contract will end next March. We hope that with our successful track record of getting registered 50+ clients into work (between 45- 50% as opposed to the national average of 15%) we may be able to successfully tender for more contracts both in East London and elsewhere in London sub regions. Anyone wishing to have us as partners in the delivery of 50+ work programme please contact us as per our contact details.

Wise Age have been awarded a contract by the LB of Tower Hamlets in partnership with the London Councils ESF fund to deliver support to 16 Tower Hamlets 50+ people looking for work, 12 of them will not be registered on DWP employment programmes. This support programme will be starting very soon and we are currently recruiting for clients , so anyone wishing to apply for this project and access our help who is 50+ and living in Tower Hamlets please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
