Age UK is here to help with the challenges we face in later life.
Ageing is not an illness, but it can be challenging. We provide vital services, support, information and advice to older people across the UK. We stand up and speak for all those who have reached later life, and also protect long-term interests of future generations.
Gifts in wills to Age UK are one of the most powerful ways to make a genuine difference to the lives of older people who need our help and support.
Every single gift is vital to Age UK. A gift left to Age UK is the promise that, years from now, people in later life will have someone to turn to if they’re feeling vulnerable, lonely and forgotten.
It’s the reassurance that, when the time comes, our vital support network will be there to help with everyday needs, so people can continue to live with dignity and respect. It’s a huge comfort to know we’re just a phone call away.
That’s why every single gift to Age UK is so valuable.
Together, we can help everyone make the most of later life.

Ann is 81 and has lived alone in her one-bedroom flat since her husband passed away. After a series of hip operations, she was a lot less mobile – and the few friends she had left were no longer well enough to visit her. She remembered a time when her phone rang every day, when there were days out and lunches circled on her calendar – when she always had something to look forward to. She missed having someone to ask how she was, and the comfort of a real smiling, friendly face.
Thankfully, things changed for Ann when she made a call to the Age UK Advice line. She was offered help and support over the phone and was then directed to our befriending service and provided with regular companionship.
Now Ann has something to look forward to every week.
A gift in your will could help us be there for someone who has no one else to turn to.
