At Age Concern we are committed to promoting the rights, wellbeing and quality of life for older people in our region. Our vision is for our older people to be a thriving, respected and engaged part of our community.

How we can help

We run a variety of workshops including Staying Safe, Life without a car, Eating well, and Improved sleep. You can also come and talk to us at events.

We have 15 exercise classes around the region which improve strength and balance and reduce the likelihood of a fall.

Our volunteer visitors spend an hour a week with someone who’s feeling lonely and make a real difference in their lives.

A new service for people who would like to get out more but need a little assistance.

We provide advice and support on a wide range of subjects and can refer you to the right service for your needs.

We do assessments for people with a disability or impairment who find travel difficult and may be entitled to subsidised travel.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

“Our participants have noticed a huge improvement in their physical wellbeing, which they enjoy talking about. The social side is really important too. We have a great team and there is plenty of fun to be had!”
