What we do

Age UK's vision is to make the UK a great place to grow older. We do this by inspiring, supporting and enabling in a number of ways.

Health & care

We put people in control of the care they receive, while sharing best practice to improve services.


We tackle loneliness, get older people active, and support people to stay independent for longer.

Campaigning & research

We run campaigns and conduct research to help make later life better for older people today and tomorrow.

Age UK network

We help the network to offer vital community support by providing unrestricted income, helping it raise money, and working together to improve quality.


Age UK’s international charity delivers our work in some of the poorest countries around the world.

How we raised our funds

Fundraising through donations, legacies, gifts, partnerships and other voluntary contributions makes up our largest source of net income at 64.5%. We also raise money by delivering charitable activities, including our Experts by Experience contract with the Care Quality Commission.
