What we do

Age UK's vision is for a world where everyone can love later life. We do this by inspiring, supporting and enabling in a number of ways:

Information & advice

We help millions of people to know their rights and make the best choices for later life.

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 support our national partners and local Age UKs to be well-run and to provide good quality services.


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.
