Who we are
Age UK Bexley is a highly regarded charity offering a wide range of services for older people in the Borough. It is also a voice for older people on issues affecting them through increased awareness, consultation and contact with clients, ensuring opinions and ideas are heard.
The charity has undergone considerable change in the last three years, with further development likely. Older people constitute a substantial part of Bexley's population and our mix of services and support are geared toward reaching as diverse a proportion of that population as possible.
The charity finished in a strong financial position last year and with investment and forecast income continuing to grow this year and next the charity is in a positive position in terms of its sustainable development.
With fully refurbished IT and digital infrastructure we operate a flexible approach to how our staff and volunteers work and the way we reach the boroughs older people. Our new Chief Executive will be joining the organisation at an exciting time for Age UK Bexley with the opportunity to develop and expand our services from a stable base.
To make us a more representative organisation we actively encourage those from Black Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds to consider us as a place to work and volunteer.
