Advice and information to help you navigate later life, live independently at home and connect to your community.

We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy a fulfilling and valued life regardless of how old they are.  All of our projects and activity aim to enable older people to become happier through giving them the choice, control and community connections to make their lives better.

Knowing where to turn for information and advice on the range of issues that arise as we grow older is a key part of achieving that.

That’s where this Guide comes in – to bring together in one place a whole host of guidance and local contact information.  It’s designed to take you through a number of common considerations and to be kept as a reference booklet to dip into as issues arise for you and your family.  From tips on healthy living to ensuring you have enough money, from opportunities to meet friends to getting support with care, there are sections to guide you through key issues.

Our ambition is for Gloucestershire to be the best county in which to grow older.  If you have thoughts or ideas on how to improve things or if you want to know more about what we do, please get in touch – we are your local charity for all things ageing.
