Age UK London is the regional charity for older people, working with local borough Age UKs across the capital. With 2.2 million people aged 50+ in London, Age UK London works on London-wide campaigns and projects that improve the quality of life and enhance the status and influence of older Londoners.

How does my money help older people?We work with regional bodies such as the Mayor of London's Office, the Greater London Authority, Transport for London and London Councils to ensure that older people's issues are kept at the front of decision-maker's minds.

We run regional campaigns on issues such as the Mayor of London's priorities, digital inclusion, information provision, bus driver behaviour and fuel poverty.

We also manage regional projects, ultimately benefitting tens of thousands of older people by: helping private sector tenants; working with older people on benefits; helping older people who want to get online; and working with over 500 older people's organisations.

Your gift will help us continue our vital work making London a great place to grow older.
