We're a local charity working in the community to support older people, their families and carers. We want everyone to be able to love later life.

About Us:

Age UK Isle of Wight is your local charity dedicated to providing essential services to support older adults on the Isle of Wight. Our mission is to support individuals aged 50+ to live well in later life. We believe that everyone deserves to enjoy a fulfilling and happy life, regardless of their age.

Since 1973, we have been supporting older Islanders to love later life. As we celebrate our 50th year, we need your help now more than ever to support those who have no one else to turn to. Our range of services are designed to meet the unique needs of individuals as they navigate the challenges and opportunities that come with aging.

Our tagline, "Loving, caring, responsive" reflects our commitment to providing compassionate and responsive care to older adults in our community. Join us in making a difference in the lives of older adults on the Isle of Wight.

Our vision: An Island community where older people are respected, valued, included and able to live the life they choose.

Our purpose: Working with, and for, older people; driving change so they can live well whatever their circumstances.
