At our office you will be welcomed by one of our local Volunteers who can provide assistance and information or by one of our trained Insurance Arrangers who can provide quotes and assistance in the office.  

At all of our offices we have access to a wide range of fact sheets on issues that affect older people, including benefits, care, housing and health.

Age UK Lancashire Trading provides a face-to-face service to arrange general insurance or other products.
