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 Lincoln & South Lincolnshire is an independent local charity. We've been working in the local community to help older people for almost 60 years. We have over 200 dedicated staff and volunteers helping us to deliver services and activities for older people in Lincoln & across the county

How we are funded

We rely on your support to keep serving the community. We are supported by donations from the public, income from our charity shops, and some charitable grants.

What we do

  • We give advice

    Our trained advisors offer free information and advice to older people and their families. In 2016 our advisers helped local older people to claim over £1m in previously unclaimed benefits.

  • We offer home help

    We offer home support services to help with shopping, cleaning and gardening. We help over 100 older people to get their food shopping every month.

  • We befriend

    Our volunteer befrienders visit lonely older people in the community who have no one to talk to. In 2016 our volunteers visited 300 older people who would otherwise be alone.

  • We provide activities

    Our day centre has a wide range of activity groups and events, such as lunch clubs and exercise classes, giving older people the opportunity to keep fit, socialise, or learn a new skill.
