Together, we can help
Please donate funds to help us provide support locally. We are accepting donations of food and essential items at the Peartree Centre.
During this difficult time we are determined to support vulnerable older people in our community. That is why we are offering an emergency shopping and prescription collection service to residents of Milton Keynes aged over 70 who do not have existing support. But we cannot do this without your help. Please make a donation to our Covid-19 emergency appeal.
The emergency service is separate to our normal Independent Living Service and we aim to provide help within a couple of days. All our volunteers delivering emergency shopping will have ID and are DBS checked. If you have any doubts at all about someone saying they are from Age UK Milton Keynes, please call us.
Call 01908 550700 Monday - Friday 9am to 4pm
The Independent Living Service is continuing to provide an essential shopping service to clients whilst minimising the risk to them and our staff.
The Footcare Service has been temporarily suspended and our Handyperson Service is restricted to fitting key safes only. This will help ensure vulnerable older people can be discharged from hospital. We are constantly evaluating how we can best support older people in Milton Keynes. We are redeploying staff and volunteers and using all available resources to provide support in the most effective way.
All our lunch clubs have closed following government advice to ensure the safety of our clients and volunteers. Our Cooks and club co-ordinators are telephoning club members regularly for a chat and to find out if they need any support.
Where possible the Information & Advice Service and Befriending Service will be provided by telephone.
If you call us on 01908 557874 and get an answerphone, please leave a message as we are picking them up and are doing our best to help.
Free, independent and confidential advice on matters that affect older people and their families.
There is a charge for these services which enable older people to live independently at home.
