Common areas of help

Main topics

  • Money and Legal

    From claiming benefits and advice on debts to our pension calculator and information on power of attorney.
  • Health & wellbeing

    Information on health conditions and using health services, as well as tips on staying fit and healthy.
  • Care

    Whether you need help at home or weighing up housing options or seeking advice on paying for care, we can help.
  • Work and learning

    Information on your rights at work, finding a new job and tips on improving your tech knowledge.

How the Advice Line helps

Listen to David giving an insight into his role.

A small favour

All the information and advice we provide on the website is free and completely independent, as is our National Advice Line that is open 365 days a year.

But demand is going up. We are an ageing population and more people than ever are coming to us for support, which is why we need to ask for help.

If you are able to, just a small gift today could help us reach even more older people wherever the need is greatest.

Please support our work
