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 insurance services and home support service, and some charitable grants.

What we do

  • We give advice

    Our trained advisors offer free information and advice to older people and their families. In 2016 our advisers helped local older people to claim over £500,000 that they were entitled to.

  • We offer home help

    We offer home support services to help with shopping, cleaning and gardening. We help over 175 older people in their own home.

  • We befriend

    Our volunteer befrienders visit lonely older people in the community who have no one to talk to.

  • We provide activities

    We have a wide range of activity groups and events, such as lunch clubs and exercise classes, giving older people the opportunity to keep fit, socialise, or learn a new skill.
