The report introduces Age UK’s priorities for the next five years with the aim of making the UK a great place to grow older by 2021:

  • Person-centred care: We will put older people at the heart of joined up health and care
  • Loneliness: We will prevent and tackle loneliness
  • First port of call: We will be the go-to place for all things ageing

It details the various ways Age UK raises its income (including fundraising and through Age UK Trading CIC, our social enterprise) and how that money is spent across six areas of charitable activity:

  • Providing information and advice (£17.1million)
  • Delivering and working to transform health and care services (£6.8 million)
  • Delivering and working to transform wellbeing services (£9.7 million)
  • Supporting the Age UK network (£ 21.1 million)
  • Campaigning and research (£9.3 million)
  • Working internationally (£16.8 million)

Key achievements in 2015/16 include:

  • Reaching 5.9 million people with information and advice
  • As part of a new approach we’re testing, we put older people’s goals at the centre of the health and care services they received, increasing wellbeing by 10%
  • Reaching over 35 million people though media coverage of our Man on the Moon partnership with John Lewis
  • The accreditation of all local Age UKs and Age UK against our externally assessed Organisational Quality Standards
  • Helping 5,748 older people by funding home energy checks, saving older people an estimated £198,857
  • Providing services to 808,000 older people and their families in over 30 developing countries
