Our mission statement is ‘To promote the wellbeing of all older people and to make later life a fulfilling and enjoyable experience.’

We are the principal voluntary organisation working for older people, their families and carers throughout County Durham.  

We aim to address the causes of difficulties faced by older people and to provide help and support where needed.  An important part of our work is campaigning to change policies and attitudes, which adversely affect older people. 

We are governed by our Board of Trustees who are all volunteers and led by our Chief Executive who all work tirelessly to ensure that older people living in County Durham have access to services, information and advice to ensure their wellbeing.

Our staff team works on information and advice, community development, consultation, intergenerational retail, trading, finance and administration.  They are a dedicated workforce, committed to the organisation and its mission.
