We are a local charity working in the community to support older people, their families and carers. We want everyone to live their best later life.
Who we are
Welcome to Age UK Lancashire. We are a county-wide charity working with and for older people. We believe that later life should be valued and fulfilling. Through the services and support we provide, we aim to promote independence, enhance health and well-being and enable older people to access the information they need to make informed decisions about their lives.
Age is different for everyone and, of course, the challenges and the demands are different for everyone, too. At Age UK Lancashire, we are many things to many people – a source of advice, information, companionship and support, among many other things.
What we do
We believe that everyone can live their best later life - we do this by inspiring, supporting and enabling in a number of ways.
- To encourage choice and opportunity for older people.
- To be a direct service provider of high quality services for older people.
- To ensure that older people are aware of, and have access to, the benefits to which they are entitled.
- To advocate on behalf of older people.
- To promote positive attitudes towards older people and ageing.

We believe in being accessible to older people their families and friends across the county.
We have offices, shops, resource centres, day time support, lunch clubs and activities countywide.
Without our dedicated teams of volunteers we wouldn't be able to support older people across the county or run our shops.
