We're Age UK Berkshire.

Our goal? To enable older people across the whole of Berkshire to enjoy later life.

We're the leading organisation providing integrated health and wellbeing services for older people across Berkshire. We are a local independent charity and part of the Age UK brand.

Age is different for everyone, and the challenges and demands of getting older are different for everyone, too. At Age UK Berkshire, we are many things to many people: a source of advice, information, support, companionship and enjoyment.

What we do

We believe that everyone can enjoy later life - we do this by inspiring, supporting and enabling people in a number of ways:

  • We encourage choice and opportunity for older people
  • We're a direct service provider of high quality services for older people
  • We ensure older people are aware of, and can access the benefits to which they are entitled
  • We advocate on behalf of older people
  • We provide support and services that make a positive difference to the quality of older people’s lives, including the most vulnerable and isolated
  • We promote positive attitudes towards older people and ageing

How do we do this?

  • We are seasoned experts. We have been working with local people since June 1950
  • We have over 45 staff, most of whom work part-time
  • Our staff work alongside a team of around 160 hard-working and dedicated volunteers
  • All our employees and volunteers undergo checks with the Disclosure & Barring Scheme (which used to be the Criminal Records Bureau)
  • Age UK Berkshire is an independent organisation responsible for its own funds and governance
  • A Board of Trustees oversees the management of the organisation and they are responsible to Age UK Berkshire Members
