Age UK Carlisle and Eden is one of only seven Age UK brand partners chosen to undertake this project. Running until March 2023, the programme aims to provide one to one, holistic, person centred advice and support to individuals over 50, who have experienced a significant life event.
Building Better Lives programme at Age UK Carlisle and Eden provides information, advice and support to people experiencing life events and supports them to achieve their longer term goals.


Who we can help?

Local people aged 50 and over, who may have experienced one of the following

  • A recent bereavement

  • A relationship breakdown

  • A new health diagnosis

  • An  increase in their care needs

  • A  change in their financial circumstances

  • A change in housing needs or circumstances.

*The project criteria is intended to encompass some of the various major challenges that older people can face in later life, however we understand that this list is not exhaustive and would encourage you to contact the office on 01228 536673, to discuss your individual circumstances further.
How can we help?
Although each session will be tailored to the older person’s individual needs, there will be a particular focus upon Income maximisation.
How will we provide this support?
Currently all sessions will be delivered over the telephone, we hope this will change to face to face delivery in the individual’s own home environment, as soon as it is safe to do so.
