Age UK is the country’s largest charity dedicated to helping everyone make the most of later life. Ageing is not an illness, but it can be challenging. We aim to improve later life for everyone though our information and advice, campaigns, products, training, research and all the vital support and services that help transform lives every day. Our services and support are provided at a national and local level to inspire, enable and support older people across the UK. We believe that age needs respect. It needs kindness. Sometimes it needs help. Because we believe that there is strength in numbers. We stand up and speak for all those who have reached later life, and also protect the long-term interests of future generations.
