Friends of Age UK

Age UK works with a number of independent organisations across the country that it calls Friends.

What do friends do?

These organisations operate locally and provide a range of services and activities which could include:

  • Visiting / Befriending
  • Café / restaurant
  • Social activities
  • Exercise/physical activity
  • IT training
  • Shopping
  • Dementia support
  • Foot care
  • Transport
  • Day care / centre
  • Products for later life
  • Information and signposting

Many of these organisations are volunteer-led so may only be open on certain days of the week.
