Age needs one voice. Now it has:
Age UK is the new force combining Age Concern England and
Help the Aged in England.
We campaign on the things that matter to all of us as we get older. Sometimes the problems we face in later life just can't be tackled on our own.
Getting involved in a campaign is as easy as sending an email to your MP or local councillor, or as rewarding as getting a group together to do something about problems facing older people in your neighbourhood.
Help make a difference and improve later life for us all by joining one of our campaigns.
Too many people in later life are being badly let down by poor quality care and support. So we're calling on the Government to urgently reform the care system.
Living in rural England can present unique challenges for older people, including higher living costs, housing that is hard to heat and maintain, poor transport links and more limited social networks.
Whether you've never campaigned with us before or are a campaigns veteran, this guide should provide you with some useful techniques and tricks of the trade.
Thousands of older people die preventably each winter. We need action to keep people warm and well.
Many of us are missing out on extra money each week because we don't know what we are entitled to, or claim what is rightfully ours.
