We're a local charity working in the community to support older people, their families and carers. We want everyone to be able to love later life.

Who we are

We aim to improve the lives of older people in Devon through delivering services that:

  • tackle loneliness and isolation
  • promote health and wellbeing
  • increase independence
  • support families and carers
  • help people access local services
  • help people identify and claim benefit entitlements
  • enable people to get the most out of life

We have a dedicated team of staff and volunteers who assist with the delivery of services and activities across Devon. From frontline Home Support Assistants to Service Managers, everyone plays a pivotal role in making a positive difference to people in later life in Devon.

Our Board of Trustees is responsible for governance of Age UK Devon. Trustees give their time on a voluntary basis to oversee our strategic direction, ensure that we remain true to our vision and that we comply with all the necessary rules and legal obligations.

Our volunteers donate their time to enable us to provide fantastic added value to our services and activities and bring a wealth of skills and knowledge to our organisation.

Where we work

Age UK Devon delivers services mainly across the rural areas of the county, covering Torridge, West Devon, South Hams, Teignbridge, East Devon and North Devon. There are independent Age UKs for Exeter, Mid Devon, Plymouth and Torbay.

The challenges of rurality are increased by the fact that Devon is the third largest county in England. This means that access to essential services and transport is an even greater need for many people in Devon.

We rely on our valuable network of volunteers across the rural communities to provide additional help and support to the people who need it most.

If you live in Torbay, Exeter, Plymouth or Mid Devon, please contact your local Age UK in the first instance.
