We believe that age needs respect, it needs kindness and sometimes it needs help. Too many people experience difficulties as they grow older. We cannot promise everyone good health, but we will campaign for the appropriate care and support for all of us. Where we find loneliness, we will reach out. Where age becomes difficult, we will try to lighten the load. For all new enquiries - Please contact us on: Helpline 0300 666 9860 9am - 3pm, calls made outside these hours will be transferred to our Age UK National Helpline.
