While Age UK England campaigns for an Age-friendly society, it is the local, independent Age UKs who provide the frontline services . Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland is a separate charity in its own right which provides local services, activities and support from its Leicester Head Office, its local offices and community centres. On these pages you can explore our many local services for older people and their carers and how to access them.
