What we do

Age UK Sunderland makes a difference

Day Clubs and Day Services

We currently have over 40 day clubs that run Monday to Friday in the Sunderland, Penshaw, Houghton, Hetton, Washington and Easington Lane areas

No one should have no one

We want local and national government to understand that older people’s loneliness really matters; that it’s a serious public health problem and not a normal part of ageing. Sign our petition asking the Government to take action with us to prevent and tackle loneliness.

Spread the Warmth

Each winter, one older person dies every seven minutes from the cold weather. Many of these deaths could be prevented if everyone lived in a warm home.
