Older and vulnerable people

There are a number of services which provide advice and support to help people across the borough stay healthy and live independently for longer.

Community Meals Service

The Community Meals Service is for people who need help to make sure they regularly have nutritious cooked meals. You can book for a few weeks or sign up for as long as you want, it’s up to you.

Day centres

The day centres in Waverley all offer a warm and welcoming environment and the opportunity to meet new people.

Health and fitness

Fit for Life 60+ classes are managed by Places Leisure and are aimed at keeping you feeling fit and well.

GPs and Health Professionals can refer appropriate patients to a qualified exercise specialist through the GP Exercise Referral Scheme. The specialist devises and delivers a 12 week tailored exercise programme for the patient, at a reduced price.

Our free weekly health walks offer the chance to take part in regular exercise meeting new people, and over 80s can swim for free at any of our leisure centres.

The Waverley Access to Leisure card offers eligible Waverley residents discounts on leisure centre activities.

If you want to help maintain local wildlife, make new friends, learn a new skill or just get some exercise - join Waverley Countryside Volunteers.

Home improvements

The Care and Repair Scheme can help people who own or privately rent their home and have the responsibility to pay for repairs and improvements, but find it difficult to arrange.

Personal alarm

The Careline personal alarm allows you to continue to live independently whilst knowing that if you have an accident or feel unwell, help is at hand 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Senior Living

Senior Living is accommodation for people aged 60 and over (or 50 years and over with a recognised disability). Our purpose-built apartments are available for couples or single people, and offer independent living with support.

Transport service

There are a number of Community Transport schemes operating throughout the borough to help people with limited mobility get around in Waverley.
