Working to make Ealing a great place to grow old in.

Age UK Ealing is a local independent charity working with older people, their family and carers in the London Borough of Ealing to help them enjoy fulfilling lives.

Helping us to do this we have a dedicated team of qualified staff and volunteers working at our head office and throughout the local community.
