We are a local, independent charity in Shepway, Kent.

We provide friendly, flexible services for older people who want to live independently at home.

We are grateful to our many donors and supporters and are proud to be part of the national Age UK "family".

Age UK Hythe and Lyminge is a thriving organisation and will continue to provide services to older people.

With the closure of the Age UK Folkestone Centre we will happily offer support to those living in Folkestone either in the community or at either one of our centres.

The change in the structure of funding from KCC is scheduled to come into effect April 2018. At Age UK Hythe and Lyminge we have been aware of this change for some time and have worked diligently to ensure there will be no disruption to services following the transition.

Despite rumours we are happy to confirm that Age UK Hythe and Lyminge will not be closing and will continue to provide services to the community to its normal high standards.
