Age UK Brighton and Hove’s main concern is, and will always be, the welfare and needs of older people in the City of Brighton and Hove.
Our identity is local, the people who use our services are local and our fundamental commitment is to the local people of this City and their families.
It's important that we say that loudly because many of you give us donations and legacies and need to know that what is given locally is spent locally, that will never change.
It's also important that you remember to put ‘to be spent in Brighton & Hove’ if your are leaving us money in a will.
Helping older people
We have been around since 1965 and all of our services are driven by the people who use them.
You are our priority, whether you are joining in activities, having your toenails cut, finding out what benefits you qualify for, using our computer suite, obtaining travel insurance, or competing against each other on the Nintendo tenpin bowling.
Our mission is clear - contracts and other funding are simply a means to achieving that mission - which is why we also fund over 20% of the work we do from legacies and other income generation.
We want everyone to understand that the people who use our services should never experience isolation; they are capable of so many things given half a chance, have a right to be economically secure, are not and will not be invisible.
The true measure of any society is how it treats its most vulnerable and how it respects those who have worked so hard to create the City and world we live in.
We are committed to making our building and services accessible to all. With this in mind, we have recently commissioned an Access Audit and we are currently working towards putting in place all their recommendations.
