We have a proud history of 25 years’ service in the London Borough of Hillingdon and have grown to provide a wide range of services to meet the needs and demands of an increasing number of older people. Our mission is to make later life better for everyone in the Borough and our values underpin everything we do and our desire to highlight what is positive about age. We are passionate to make Hillingdon a great place to grow old in.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our services. All our staff and volunteers are ;DBS checked and fully trained so you can be assured of a reliable, professional and caring service. We also appreciate that family members who have busy lives or perhaps do not live locally cannot always readily offer the help to their relatives that they would wish. You can be reassured that by contacting us, your relative will receive the support they need.
There are many ways we can help you. Do take a look at the services we offer, from information to social contact to practical help at home.
As a charity we make significant use of volunteers which not only enables us to offer our extensive range of services, but provides our volunteers with a real sense of community spirit and the knowledge that they are doing something worthwhile. We always welcome enquiries for new volunteers and there are many ways in which you can help us. We depend on the support of people with energy or expertise or both, who care about older people so please do look at the volunteering section for more information.

Age UK Hillingdon has 9 trustees who are responsible in law for the charity.
Their services are offered on a voluntary basis and they are elected by the members at the AGM. They set overall policy and implement and monitor our three year plan. It is also their responsibility to raise funds for the services that Age UK Hillingdon run and to raise the profile of the organisation within the borough.
Age UK Hillingdon is committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all older people and children within the London Borough of Hillingdon.
