Age UK Bury offers a free and confidential information and advice service for older people, their families and carers.
How to access the service
The aim of our Information and Advice service is to support older people and their carers to enable them to live independently and manage the challenges that getting older can bring.
Our service specialises in ensuring people receive their full entitlement to benefits and supports people with applying for Pension Credits and Attendance Allowance. Since the service started in 2013, the service has put over £12 million back in the pockets of older people in Bury.
To book a free appointment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0161 763 9030.
Our service is free but we welcome donations to keep the service up and running
Our information and advice officers are available Monday to Friday, 9.30 am to 4pm.

Our advisers are trained to help you on the following topics.
- Social care - such as finding a care home or getting some help at home, and how it's funded.
