About Age UK Maidstone
Age UK Maidstone has been through significant change over the past 12/15 months and has dealt with the challenges of managing during the Covid-19 environment.
Age UK Maidstone is an independent local charity that exists to promote the welfare of older residents in the Borough of Maidstone. We provide a range of free and paid-for services, from impartial information and advice to domestic assistance that allows clients to remain independent in their own homes. Age UK Maidstone also organise community events that help to reduce the issue of loneliness and isolation felt by some of the older people in our community.
We believe older people are entitled to the help they need to improve their own sense of wellbeing, to promote independence and to have control of their own lives.
