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.
Who we are
Age UK Kensington & Chelsea is an independent, local charity working at the heart of the community to make sure that older people’s voices are heard, their needs are met and their is independence supported. We provide a wide range of services including befriending, practical help, information and advice and a variety of social and leisure activities.
The charity was set up in 1973 as Age Concern Kensington & Chelsea and incorporated as a charitable company in 2000. With the needs of older people always in the forefront of the charity’s work, Age Concern K&C was strengthened by merging with Sixty Plus in April 2009, reflecting the changing nature of the charitable sector and the needs of older people over the years. With the national merger of Help the Aged and Age Concern, the charity became Age UK Kensington & Chelsea in 2010.
