We exist to provide support to older people in Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Torfaen, Newport and Monmouthshire.  Please contact the Age Cymru Advice Line for any information and advice queries. Lines are open between 9:00am and 4:00pm, Monday - Friday. Calls are charged at local rate.

Our Priorities

Our focus is on the older people who need us most. We put older people at the heart of everything we do. We are experts in issues affecting older people. We provide quality services which meet the needs of older people as they define them. We listen to the views of older people and ensure that they are communicated. We observe and promote dignity, both internally and promote these values to the wider community.

Our Vision

Age Cymru Gwent’s vision is a world where everyone can love later life. We know it won’t be easy getting there, but we believe it’s how things should be for people in later life and, with your help, we work every day to make it happen. Acting together with like-minded charities and other organisations enables us to achieve far more for older people. We do so largely through the Age UK network, and Age Cymru Partnership.

Our Values

When we work with older people, our colleagues and our partners, we always; Work together to get things done and achieve more. We treat our clients, colleagues and our partners with friendliness, respect, dignity and empathy. We act professionally, openly and honestly and we embrace diversity and treat others as equals.

We are local

We work as part of the Age UK network – a partnership of independent charities which include Age UK; national partners Age NI, Age Scotland, over 120 Age UK England Partners and Age Cymru which includes five local Age Cymru Partner's including Age Cymru Gwent.

We are national

Age UK help millions of people every year, providing support, companionship and advice to the older people who need our help the most. We are a strong voice, campaigning with and for older people to champion their rights, needs and wishes.

Your Legacy

Gifts in wills are vital to Age Cymru Gwent, and mean that years from now, people in later life will have someone to turn to if they’re feeling vulnerable, lonely and forgotten. It’s the reassurance that, when the time comes, we will be there to help with everyday needs, so people can continue to live with dignity and respect.

Fundraising

There was a very real risk of us being overwhelmed by demand during the pandemic, but we were determined to rise to the challenge. The pandemic turned many forms of our fundraising upside down. Income from fundraising events was immediately hit, and many of our face-to-face wellbeing programmes for older people were halted, affecting the restricted funding we receive to deliver our services. Our focus for the coming year is to rebuild our Fundraising streams through building our employer profile. So please ‘like’ us on Facebook, ‘follow’ us on Twitter and add our colleagues on Linkedin.
