We are monitoring the situation with regard to the Covid-19 virus on a daily basis.

Central to our decision making is the safety of our clients, our volunteers and our staff.

Age UK County Durham is working hard to meet the needs of our older residents during this Covid-19 outbreak.

Our dedicated staff and volunteers are offering a shopping service to those most in need of basic food and medical supplies and who are unable to leave their homes or access on line shopping.

We have a telephone welfare service in place; offering daily or weekly calls to those who are self-isolating to check they are well and managing in their own homes.

Our Information and Advice service is still operating and can be contacted on 0191 374 6367 and we are working with other service providers, wherever possible, to provide vital services that are needed at his time.

If you would like to help us during this time of particular need, you can contact us on 0191 386 3856 or email us at  with your name and contact details.
