We rely on your support to help older people in Essex. Every penny we raise stays in Essex.
You can make a difference
From offering friendship to the lonely to providing information and advice to the vulnerable, Age UK Essex do everything we can to make growing old easier.
With a growing older population, the demand for our services is increasing so we need your support now more than ever. Your donation means we can provide a sitting service to offer valuable respite for carers, practical help around the house so people stay in their own homes and free, impartial advice to help everyone meet the challenges of later life.
Every penny you donate stays in Essex and helps those in your local community.
