We envisage a Hertfordshire where older people are valued, able to live well, age well and retain their independence throughout later life.
Who we are
Age UK Hertfordshire is working to improve later life for thousands of older people in Hertfordshire today and in future generations. We celebrate ageing, we create opportunities for people in later life and we challenge disadvantage and discrimination experienced by our ageing population. Our aim is to set a positive agenda for later life and play a key influencing role in changing the approach of society in Hertfordshire to older people.
Age UK Hertfordshire is one of the largest charities providing services to older people in Hertfordshire and has a high level of recognition among the statutory authorities, voluntary sector and the public. Age UK Hertfordshire is a brand partner of Age UK, able to use the Age UK brand in return for working to agreed quality standards.
How we are funded
In 2016-17 Age UK Hertfordshire generated nearly £3.4m of income from a range of sources, which has gone a long way in funding our services for older people.
We are proud to deliver all of our services to the high standards of quality marks AQS and CQS
AQS is a quality mark awarded by the Advice Services Alliance to organisations who deliver an exceptional advice service to the public.
