Sadly, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to put many of our face to face services and activities on hold for the time being. However, Age UK Mid Mersey remains committed to providing the best support possible to older people in our local communities. We are still here to help and can offer Information and Advice, FREE benefit checks and Home Energy checks, wellbeing support and signposting.
The information, advice and support our specialist information officers provide to people aged over 50 and their families is free, confidential and impartial.
We provide information, advice and support on a wide range of issues relevant to older people, including:
- how to access care and support
- housing options, repairs and adaptations
- help and care at home
- health and wellbeing
- understanding documents
- care homes
- education and learning
- local services
- benefits advice
- fuel poverty
If we can't help, we'll put you in touch with someone who can.
Free Age UK guides and factsheets are also available, which cover later life issues. Please contact us for physical copies or details of other services.
Welfare benefits (for over 65s)
Our Wellbeing Officers are able to check that you are receiving all of the state pensions and benefits you should be and, if not, will provide you with all of the practical support you need. This additional income can help assist older people to maintain their independence.
In 2019-20 we helped almost 3,000 people to claim an extra £1.3 million in benefits.
