Welcome to Age UK Gateshead website!

We are an independent, local charity working for and with older people across Gateshead.

Late night shopping

Age UK Gatesheads and the travel and tourism students of Gateshead College are teaming up to bring you a late night shopping event on Thursday 23rd April!

Come along and find yourself a bargain!!

On the 28th & 29th March Gateshead Age UK had a very exciting weekend! On the Saturday our budding team of warriors took on the challenges that Whitley Bay had to offer them! On Sunday the lovely family of Renee Potts held their annual memorial walk donating all funds raised to Age UK Gateshead. 
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who got involved during our weekend of events. Whether they were clambering their way over obstacles, pottering their way through Watergate forest, supporting from the side lines or donating anything they could give. 
Everything you did is hugely appreciated and will ensure we can continue to help Gateshead’s older community Love Later
