Age UK

Age UK’s vision is a world where everyone can love later life

We know it won’t be easy getting there, but we believe it’s how things should be. With your help, we work every day to make it happen. Click the link to visit Age UK (Plymouth).

Who we help

Our focus, more than ever, is on the older people who need us the most. 

Too many older people are living in poverty or just above the poverty line. Too many find themselves without the care and support they desperately need. Too many have no one to turn to.

Age UK is the country’s leading charity dedicated to helping everyone make the most of later life.

The over-60s is the fastest-growing group in society and there are more of us than ever before.

Ageing is not an illness, but it can be challenging. At Age UK we provide services and support at a national and local level to inspire, enable and support older people.

We stand up and speak for all those who have reached later life, and also protect the long-term interests of future generations.

We are local

The Age UK network is a partnership of independent charities which includes our national partners, over 120 local Age UKs, and hundreds of smaller organisations called Age UK Friends and Forums.

We are international

Our international subsidiary charity, Age International, works in over 30 developing countries. Age International is a member of the HelpAge global network and the Disasters Emergency Committee.

Campaigning and research

We’ll make the most difference to the most disadvantaged older people through effective campaigning and influencing, underpinned by policy work and research.

Information and advice

We’ll reach out to older people, their carers, and their families, to support them with the impartial, personalised, and expert information and advice they need

Health and care

We’ll enable older people to have access to high quality, locally available services that address their health and care needs, provided by the Age UK network.


We’ll deliver wellbeing programmes that have a big impact on wellbeing and provide long-term benefit to the Age UK network’s services.

Age UK network

We’ll secure a strong and enduring local presence of Age UKs and other community organisations to deliver the support and opportunities that local older people need.
