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

Age UK East London is an independent local charity. We've been working in our communities alongside older people for over 30 years. We have more than 80 dedicated staff and over 100 regular volunteers helping us to deliver services right across East London.

We are a brand partner of Age UK - the national charity formed from the merger of Help the Aged and Age Concern England.

Our Values

Older people and their carers are our partners in everything we do.  We aim to keep our work:

Personal

Safe

Expert

Progressive

Respectful

Where you can find us

We offer services primarily across the London Boroughs of Hackney, Newham and Tower Hamlets and we are currently providing Home and Care services within Waltham Forest, Navigation and Befriending in The City of London and a Handyperson service in Havering.

How we are funded

We are funded through commissions, grants and donations from the public. We can only continue to provide care and support in our communities with the generous help of our supporters.  If you would like to donate please visit our Fundraising page

What we do

We offer a range of services to people in later life covering the continuum across changing needs as people age.

All our services promote independent living and are managed thematically under the following headings:

  • Health and Fitness
  • User engagement
  • Day Opportunities
  • Community Outreach
  • Information and Advice
  • Advocacy and Befriending
  • Home & Care Services

Meet our people

We can only do the things we do with the energy and dedication of our Volunteers, Staff and Trustees.

To join our team we are looking for people who are enthusiastic, professional and want to learn. All our people are empowered and supported to do their job and we expect them to empower and support colleagues to do their job.

Our Future

We want to change things with and for all older people across the whole of East London’s vibrant and diverse communities.

We want to work with other organisations and people.

We want the future for all older people in East London to be the best it can be – and we are committed to achieving that end.
