Lily online

The Lily online directory lists organisations, services and activities that help people live healthy, active and independent lives.

Lily in the community

Trained Lily advisors visit local groups, locations and events to promote our service.

Clients can have up to five face-to-face sessions, and can use the time however they wish: to get help searching the Lily online directory, to be referred to other services, or to be supported when trying new activities, or volunteering.

Promoting Lily

We're keen for you to spread the word about Lily in the community. We hope you'll support us in our efforts to promote how Lily can assist people to live independent and fulfilled lives within their own communities, and support others to do the same.

From basic household assistance and future planning, to dealing with complex issues, Lily is a great signposting tool to help local residents to retain their independence and discover what's on offer locally.

The Lily website is user friendly can be viewed on any type of internet device, including tablet computers and smart phones.

Lily Advisors are available to attend meetings, events and community locations with information and mobile IT.
