Our Services

Feeling lonely?

We run a befriending service, matching older people with a volunteer to help provide companionship.

Need help at home?

We provide practical assistance with anything from cleaning, laundry and ironing through to light meal preparation, picking up prescriptions and companionship.

Fancy a light lunch?

With a fresh selection of affordable foods from sandwiches, jacket potatoes, paninis, salads and cakes there is plenty from you to choose from.

Become a trustee

There are several opportunities for Trustees. This is a fantastic opportunity to utilise your experience and skills to an organisation to help improve the health and wellbeing of older people.

We improve health and wellbeing

We provide over 50 regular weekly exercise, social and learning activities to ensure you keep fit, have fun and learn new skills in later life.

We enable independence

Most of us want to live independently in our own homes for as long as possible, but as we get older we may need some support and assistance.

Join our fundraising team

Organise an event or take part in a personal challenge to raise funds. Every penny raised for Age UK South Tyneside supports older people in your local community - benefiting your family, friends and neighbours.
