We're a local charity working in the community to support older people, their families and carers. We want everyone to be able to love later life.

Who we are

Age UK Birmingham is an independent local charity, working alongside Age Uk Sandwell to support the older people of the City of Birmingham and the Metropolitan Borough of Sandwell. We've been working in the local community to help older people for 30 years in various forms. We have 53 dedicated staff and over 50 volunteers helping us to deliver services and activities for older people in Birmingham.

How we are funded

We rely on your support to keep serving the community. We are supported by donations from the public, income from our charity shops, and some charitable grants and some support from the Big Lottery Fund and Birmingham City Council.

What we do

  • We give advice

    Our trained advisors offer free information and advice to older people and their families. Each year we help older people claim thousands of pounds worth of benefits to help them live with dignity as well as offer other advice and signposting.

  • We run centres

    We have 3 centres located in the Old Oscott area of Great Barr, the Court Oak area of Harborne and just outside the centre of Sutton Coldfield. Lunch clubs, various activities and dementia support are delivered in these centres.

  • Local projects

    We partner with other organisations to deliver projects across the city. Ageing Better is run in co-operation with BVSC, and other local organisation hubs across the city. We also work with the Disability Resource Centre and the local CCGs.

  • Our further services

    Though our information & advice service and day centres are main points of contact between the charity and older people, we offer various other services both charged for and free of charge at the point of delivery. Most services cover the entire of Birmingham.
