A world where everyone can love later life
Age UK is the country’s largest charity dedicated to helping everyone make the most of later life. The over-60s is the fastest-growing group in society and there are now more over-60s than ever before. Ageing is not an illness, but it can be challenging. The charity speaks for all those who have reached later life, and also protects the long-term interests of future generations. The charity’s network comprises around 150 local Age UKs reaching most of England.
The family also includes Age Cymru, Age NI and Age Scotland, as well as Age International, with whom the charity supports vulnerable older people in more than 40 countries worldwide. Age UK provides services and support at a national and local level to inspire, enable and support older people and your micro-donations support this work, giving people like Barbara a break from loneliness through befriending programmes like Call in Time.
