Who are Age UK Camden?

We are a local independent charity, established in 1965, who have been supporting older people in Camden for more than 50 years.

We have grown to become one of the largest Age UK charities in London, helping over 15,000 older people each year through a range of services. There are currently over 30,000 people over 65 years living in Camden. Our role is to help those over 55 stay active, connected, independent and to empower them in later life. Some of our services are now open to those aged 18 years and above. 

Our Values

We feel it is important as a community-based charity that our work is guided by a set of core values. Our values are important to us and are represented in everything we do. Our values are: Kindness, Courage, Hope and Justice.

What we do

  • We give advice

    Our trained Information and Advice Managers offer free information and advice to older people, and their families on a wide range of topics. 

  • We offer help organising care

    Our Information and Advice team can give you and your family personalised advice about organising care and support for yourself or a loved one.

  • We befriend

    We offer a range of volunteering opportunities, ensuring that older people in Camden experience companionship, and are empowered to get out and about in the community.

  • We provide activities

    Our day centres offer a wide range of activity groups and events, such as dancing and exercise classes, music and art, giving older people the opportunity to keep fit, socialise, or learn a new skill.

Meet our people
