Welcome to Age UK Hammersmith and Fulham

We are an independent local charity that supports older people across Hammersmith and Fulham. We provide a wide range of practical services and activities that promote wellbeing and independence. Along with a charity shop, we also have an Activity Centre providing a great value lunch, digital skills training, fitness classes, footcare, treatments, social interest groups, information and advice and more. Unfortunately, our centre and our charity whop are currently closed due to Tier 4 restrictions.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Until we are able to open again we will be offering online activities and the below services:
