Our services are starting to open up for face to face again but we are still able to offer many aspects of our work by phone or virtually.

Where we meet face to face we follow government guidelines and seek to ensure our staff and those who we work with are safe and feel safe.

Age UK Hillingdon, Harrow and Brent offer a range of services to older people across the area. 

These services include both free and services you need to pay for

All our boroughs offer Information and Advice and Homeshare services, however other services are dependent on external funders who pay for the services we provide, telling us where, when and how this money must be spent.
