We are a local charity that exists to support older people in Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch and the Eastern Dorset area to live happy, healthy, and independent lives.
Who we are
Age UK Bournemouth, Poole & East Dorset is an independent local charity. We exist to promote the health and well-being of people in later life by providing services; identifying gaps in provision; and by influencing policy and decision makers. We have 30 dedicated staff and over 140 volunteers helping us to deliver services and activities for local older people.
Our office can be found at 700 Wimborne Road in Bournemouth, our day centres are run at Sutton road and Turbary Park, and our shop is on Ashley Road in Poole.
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. Without the dedication and kindness of our supporters we would not be able to provide the range of help that we are currently able to offer.
