FiSH arranges a variety of activities on a weekly basis, all with the aim of combating loneliness and enabling elderly people to maintain their independence for as long as possible. The buttons below will take you to further information about the services provided... and also the opportunities that are available to help others within the local community.
We all need a little help from time to time, whatever our age. We may find ourselves confined to home as a result of illness or injury, or because we are caring for family members. At such times, it can be difficult to get out to the shops… or to collect a prescription… or to get to the hospital for an outpatient appointment. For the elderly or frail, these things can be especially difficult as can a host of other practical tasks. For further details click here. The FiSH Helpline is open Monday to Friday between 9:00am and 12:00pm and the service is available to all FiSH members by calling 020 8876 3414.
Door to Door Shopping
FiSH provides a door-to-door supermarket shopping service using accessible transport. Trips are taken to Sainsbury’s in Richmond, Tesco at Brook Green and Waitrose in East Sheen. Shoppers go on a regular bi-weekly basis on Tuesdays and Thursdays and a waiting list is in operation. We currently have vacancies on our shopping rotas. Please call 020 8876 3765 if you, or someone you know, would be interested in using this service.
Singing Scales ... the FiSH Choir
If you enjoy making music, the FiSH Choir could be for you! Singing is good for health and well-being as it can improve your breathing and mood. It’s also an opportunity to meet others and have fun. New members are very welcome and the only requirement is enthusiasm. We particularly need more male voices. The Choir rehearse twice a month on Monday afternoons at Barnes Green Centre from 2:00pm–3:00pm. For further information please ring FiSH on 020 8876 3335.
