Our Services

14 brave fundraisers, aged from 17 to 91 years old, recently jumped out of a plane to raise over £6,500 to support our vital services.  
Joan Livingstone, the oldest skydiver at 91, was the last to jump from over 10,000ft with a crowd of friends, supporters and other skydivers to cheer her on.  Read her story and watch the amazing video from her skydive here.

Age UK Isle of Wight is a local, independent charity that exists to work with, and for, all people aged 50 years and over on the Isle of Wight. Our services help people to improve their quality of life, whatever their circumstances.

 

They can help you (or someone you care about) to stay happy, healthy and connected.

Stay Well This Winter

Our Men in Sheds project currently has 5 active sheds that are positively changing the lives of local older men across the Isle of Wight.  
We have an opportunity to open a 6th shed in a new location but we need your help to get it up and running.
Please visit our Crowdfunding page below to find out more and to support your shed!

Cold weather can be very harmful, especially for people aged 65 or older.

The Stay Well This Winter Campaign is a joint initiative, from NHS England and Public Health England, to help people with long-term conditions and those over 65 prepare for winter and ward off common winter illnesses.

Thankfully there’s lots of practical steps and support available to help you Stay Well This Winter.
