We're a local charity working with older people in the London Borough of Ealing to help them enjoy fulfilling lives.
Who We Are
Age UK Ealing is a local independent charity whose objective is to promote the interest of older people in any manner deemed by law to be charitable in and around the London Borough of Ealing. Age UK Ealing became a brand partner of Age UK (the national charity) in 2011, prior to which the charity was called Age Concern Ealing (ACE). Age Concern Ealing was formed in 2003 by way of merger of four smaller Age Concerns in the borough of Ealing and until recently it was trading as Age UK Ealing
Although, we have been trading as Age UK Ealing for some time, in November 2019, our name was officially changed to Age UK Ealing. Whilst, the charity is a member of the Age UK national network, it is responsible for raising its own income.
In challenging times, our purpose remains clear and resolute. Our mission is to promote the wellbeing of all older people in Ealing and empower them to achieve full quality of life.
We will continue to improve later life and consolidate our position as the leading voluntary organisation defending older peoples’ interests in the London Borough of Ealing. Older people from all cultures and backgrounds will recognise what we do as relevant to their lives.
