At Age UK Hertfordshire we work with you, our supporters, to help raise awareness of the issues that matter in Hertfordshire.

It Doesn't Add Up

Age UK Hertfordshire are increasingly concerned about how the rising cost of living is affecting older people on low and modest incomes. Prices of everyday items are going up so quickly now that they risk being totally overwhelmed.

Age UK National are also concerned and have launch the 'It Doesn't Add Up' campaign to raise these issues with the Government.

  • Right now, the care system is broken

    Our care system was already at crisis point, but the coronavirus pandemic has made it even weaker. Millions of older people are struggling to get the support they need, and carers are often left to manage on their own.

    Age UK are calling for a new national system that's free and available to everyone when they need it.

  • Save free prescriptions for 60-65 year olds

    The Government has announced it is consulting on plans to move the qualifying age for free prescriptions in England from 60 to the State Pension age, which is currently 66.

    Age UK have been fighting back and making sure older people's veiws aren't ignored.
