Age UK City of London is the charity for older people in the square mile.

Woman helping man with advice

Our services support and enhance wellbeing and help build social connections so that people can enjoy growing older in this fantastic, vibrant city. Whether you are a City resident, or whether you work, volunteer or study in the square mile, the opportunities that we provide will enable you to maintain an active independent life, develop new friends and interests, be part of a community and make the most of living in the heart of London.

    • Keeping in touch with friends and neighbours: whether you're a craft enthusiast, a film buff or just want a chat over a hot cuppa, our coffee afternoons offer an opportunity to spend time with like-minded people in a welcoming atmosphere.

    • Keeping fit and active: we offer a range of physical activity from walking to yoga and zumba.
    • Linking you up with the support you need: whether you need some help getting online, help with food shopping or a referral to the local food bank, Age UK City of London can put you touch with organisations who can help.

    • Entertainment and cultural enrichment: we organise regular outings to places of interest such as museums, galleries, Livery Halls, historic buildings, concerts and the ballet, trips to the seaside and more.
