About Us

Age UK South Lakeland is passionate that everyone should have the opportunity to be able to make the most of later life, whatever their circumstances, wants and needs. We work with local older people to help them retain their independence and exercise real choice in their lives.

We are an independent charity and have been operating locally since 1978. We have been a brand partner of the national charity Age UK since April 2010. Our services cover the whole of South Lakeland, and our impact locally is driven by the passion and dedication of our team of over 50 staff and over 200 volunteers, as well as our ability to raise much needed funds to sustain our work now and in the future.

 
Sometimes the problems we face in later life can't be tackled on our own. We provide tailored information. We give one to one advice. We campaign locally. And we do much more, from organising village drop-ins to setting up lunch clubs, working with older people so that they can stay living well at home.
 
Our purpose is to work with local older people to help them retain their independence and exercise real choice in their lives.
We aim to do this by:
 
 
 
Delivering services that help to meet the needs of older people and fit with the other local services in the communities in which they lives
 
Informing and advising older people of their rights and options
 
Advocating for and on behalf of older people on issues which matter to them as individuals or communities, consistently and constantly to ensure we fully understand their needs.
We make a difference to the 18,000 people who use our services every year.
