We're a local charity working in the community to support older people, their families and carers. We want everyone to be able to love later life.

Who we are

Age UK Camden is an independent charity that helps older people to stay active, stay connected and get the most out of life. We've been working in the local community to support older people for 50 years and have 60 dedicated staff and over 200 volunteers helping us to deliver high quality, innovative services and activities for older people in Camden.

What we do

We work with and for older people in Camden to promote wellbeing and help make later life a fulfilling and enjoyable experience.

Where you can find us

Our main office is at Tavis House, Tavistock Square and we have two day centres (Kings Cross and Hampstead) as well as a shop on Leather Lane.

What we do

  • We give advice

    Our trained advisers offer free information and advice to older people and their families on a wide range of topics. In 2016/16 we helped 2,726 clients with 9,009 issues.

  • We offer home help

    Our 'At Home' service offers tailored care support - from help with washing, bathing and dressing to meal preparation.

  • We befriend

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

  • 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

  • Staff and trustees

    We have a team of 60 dedicated staff members, helping us to deliver information and advice, home visits, dementia support and much more.
