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 take part in events and run a variety of workshops including Safer Driving, Life without a car, Eating well, and Improved sleep.

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.

COMPANION WALKING

Coming soon! 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!”
