Age UK Derby and Derbyshire works within the East Midlands region on shared projects, and we co-ordinate our work to achieve the best possible outcomes for older people in the East Midlands.

Age Concerns & Age UK working together

Within Derbyshire there are a number of smaller Age Concern groups. We meet together in a County Forum to share best practice and offer mutual support. Together the County Forum created a County Plan identifying ways we could work together more effectively and share resources. It identifies aims for future work and the resources needed.

If you would like to use the collective force of Age Concern/Age UK in Derbyshire please contact Katy Pugh, Chief Executive, Age UK Derby and Derbyshire.

Age Concern Groups are mostly volunteer led providing services within their local community. All rely on local fundraising and volunteer support.

Infrastructure support

Age UK Derby and Derbyshire offers support to older people’s groups in the county and city. This support includes signposting to sources of advice and information, practical help with issues such as funding, meeting basic standards, training and best practice. We also support local groups with promotion through our Information and Advice Service, newsletters and promotional materials.

If you would like support for your group please see the support for older people's services page or contact us.
