Our History

The Charity was set up in 1973 as Age Concern Kensington & Chelsea and incorporated as a charitable company in 2000. With the needs of older people always in the forefront of the Charity’s work, Age Concern K&C was strengthened by merging with Sixty Plus in April 2009, reflecting the changing nature of the charitable sector and the needs of older people over the years. With the national merger of Help the Aged and Age Concern, the charity became Age UK Kensington & Chelsea in 2010.

  2. Learning from this experience to inform our understanding of older people's needs 
  3. Ensuring the voice of older people in Kensington & Chelsea is heard
