As the UK’s largest charity working with and for older people Age UK provides vital support and services for millions of men and women in later life.
The work we support ranges from local services like day centres and handyperson schemes to medical research and campaigning. We provide invaluable advice through our busy phone line and free information guides. When disaster strikes overseas, we are there to make certain older people receive care and attention.
So much of Age UK's work is only possible thanks to our kind supporters remembering us in their wills. It's really only thanks to these legacies that we've been able to do all we have to help improve later life for millions of people.
Our older population is growing every year and demand for our services is increasing. We don't know exactly what the future will hold, but we do know that with the support of people remembering us in their wills, we will be in a better position to help more older people in the future. It really does make a huge difference to all that we do.
Below is just one example of the many services and projects that Age UK runs to help and support older people. If you are interested in knowing more about the work of Age UK, please contact us.

Our relationship with Wendy began with an old electric blanket. After seeing our press advertisements, she brought it to us for safety testing. And it was a good job she did – the blanket failed the test. We gave her a replacement and asked if she’d like the Fire Service to pop around and check her electrics too. When they arrived, they found her wiring in a dangerous state. They fitted a smoke alarm, and then we helped her get a grant to fix her electrics. Now, Wendy sleeps safe and sound at night.
