We have a vision that all older people in the area live a healthy, happy and satisfying later life.
At Age UK Bath and North East Somerset, we are many things to many people: a source of advice, information, companionship and support.
We are a local, independent charity supporting older people in Bath & North East Somerset. Although part of the Age UK family, all the money we raise is used to support people in B&NES. We rely on the generosity of the local community, businesses and people just like you to help us keep our services running.
Our objectives are:
- To provide a voice for older people and seek to challenge age discrimination, guided by the strength and voice of older people themselves
- To construct a strong network of volunteers and members who are active in our communities
- To work together with our members of staff to ensure that older people are as healthy, satisfied and comfortable as possible
- To ensure that older people have opportunities to participate and contribute as valued members of their communities.
We are currently partnering with IntGen, an intergenerational mentoring scheme which enables the transference of entrepreneurial skills and recognises that one of the best forms of lifelong learning takes place in an intergeneration context. Together young and old are assets to any community and can offer support to one another through meaningful interaction.
