Making a difference

From offering friendship to the lonely to providing information and advice to the vulnerable, Age UK Essex do everything we can to make growing old easier.

With a growing older population, the demand for our services is increasing so we need your support now more than ever. Your donation means we can provide a sitting service to offer valuable respite for carers, practical help around the house so people stay in their own homes and free, impartial advice to help everyone meet the challenges of later life.

As little as £5 could help us call a lonely older person for a friendly chat while £10 could help provide a 30 minute one-to-one advice session. Just £25 could sponsor a Befriender for a whole month.

Every penny you donate stays in Essex and helps those in your local community. 

Age UK Essex is proud to provide a range of services and your gift will go wherever the need is greatest.
