Before Age UK Hilingdon, Harrow and Brent merged on the 1st July 2018, all 3 charities had their own strategies, mission statements, visions, values and aims. One of my key tasks that I needed to do following us joining force was to develop and agree a new unified version of these. Following extensive consultation across the merged charity this work has been completed and we have now agreed a five year plan for 2020-2025 which will help to achieve what we as a charity want most.
