A New Patron For Age UK Birmingham
Published on 21 June 2018 03:00 PM
Kay Alexander MBE, has agreed to support Age UK Birmingham to raise awareness of its work with older people, and help make older people and their carers more aware of local services in their local community.
Kay Alexander says, “As we get older we all want to maintain our independence and our dignity for as long as we can. All too often older people and their carers don’t know where to turn for information and advice, and suffer unnecessary hardships. With a little bit of help though, quality of life can really be improved. I look forward to helping to keep people better informed and find out more about services to help them in their local community.”
Alison Schofield CEO says “I really look forward to working with Kay to highlight the plight and needs of older people in Birmingham."

The Seymour Centre specialises in day care for clients living with dementia, and operates minibuses such as the one in the background to get clients to and from the centre.
