We're Age UK Buckinghamshire and our goal is to enable older people across the county to love later life.
Who we are
Age is different for everyone and the challenges and the demands are different for everyone too. At Age UK Buckinghamshire, we are many things to many people – a source of advice, information, companionship and support. We are an independent and local charity, passionate about making Buckinghamshire a great place to grow old.
What we do
We stand up and speak for all those who have reached later life, and also protect the long-term interests of future generations. We work to ensure that as you grow older, wherever you live, however much money you have, however tough life is, you will have access to comfort and company, to care and support, and to a life worth living. We exist to make sure you will have opportunities, and something to look forward to every day. We are here to make sure your voice counts.
We strive to:
Help older people achieve and maintain their independence and wellbeing.
Support older people to reduce their risk of isolation and loneliness.
Enable older people to make informed decisions through the provision of quality information and advice.
Provide high quality services for older people.
