Age UK Harrow

In 2010, Age Concern and Help the Aged joined forces to become Age UK, a new national charity for later life. IN 2011 Age Concern Harrow became Age UK Harrow.

We are an independent charity and our aim is to support older people in Harrow, from all walks of life and ethnic communities.
