Age UK – 0844 556 4738

Age UK was formed in 2009 as the result of a merger between Help the Aged and Aged Concern. The merger formed the UK’s largest charity dedicated to helping older people. Each year, Age UK helps over five million people enjoy their later life. The charity has partnered with over 170 local partners so that elderly people can get the services that they need in their local area.

Age UK is a charity that is dedicated to helping people in their later stages of life. They do this by providing support and inspiration. Age UK helps to identify benefits that elderly people are entitled to and gives advice on making the most of their money in later life as well as campaigning for better pensions. The charity campaigns for higher quality health care for older people, working with local services to ensure that older people are being cared for with dignity and respect. The charity is a member of the Malnutrition Task Force which aims to prevent malnutrition occurring in hospital environments. Age UK hopes to inspire elderly people to look after their wellbeing by being active and hopes to tackle the widespread issue of loneliness with a befriending helpline. Local Age UKs carry out home energy checks to assess the energy efficiency levels of older people’s properties, as well as providing advice on housing. Age UK supports elderly people in the community by ensuring that their voices are heard and providing funding for better services.

Age UK have over 450 charity shops in the UK. In the shops, you will find all types of different items including clothing, gifts, furniture and homeware which can be second-hand or new. The shops also have a ‘green hub’ stocked with leaflets to give elderly people and their families advice. You can find your nearest Age UK charity shop by visiting the Age UK website.

Age UK also have a website which helps people to buy age-related products, such as mobile phones that have been designed simply for calling and texting, stairlifts, personal alarms, adjustable beds and mobility aids. You can also purchase financial products such as an equity release which allows you to free up some of the value of your home without needing to move and funeral plans to ensure that every aspect of your funeral is meticulously planned and paid for, so that your family don’t need to stress about organising and paying for it. The funeral plan freezes the cost of a funeral at today’s prices, unlike some other funeral plans.
