Age UK Milton Keynes works with other organisations, both public and private, in order to provide the services that local older people tell us they need.
Milton Keynes Clinical Commissioning Group - the Age UK Milton Keynes Hospital Aftercare Service is being funded for three years and works closely with Milton Keynes Hospital to provide support to people when they are patients on a hospital ward or in A&E. Our staff also take people home from hospital and can provide practical support for up to six weeks after discharge.
E.On - the Age UK Milton Keynes Handyperson Service is being funded to provide free energy checks and energy efficient products to residents of Milton Keynes. This partnership will run until April 2018.
West Bletchley Council - funds three weekly advice sessions by our Information & Advice Service for residents in their parish.
Woburn Sands Town Council - funds a weekly advice session by our Information & Advice Service in their parish.
The Open University - Age UK Milton Keynes is a collaborating partner in a project 'Investigating the role of wearable activity-tracking technologies in the well-being and quality of life of people aged 55 and over' which has received funding from Sir Halley Stewart Trust. In July 2018 this project received an award for outstanding impact on society.
Milton Keynes Chamber of Commerce - We are proud to be a member of the local chamber of commerce.
Age UK Milton Keynes supports other voluntary organisations and works locally to improve later life in our community.
Senior Voice MK
A voice for older people in Milton Keynes
Join our friendly group and have your say. Senior Voice MK aims to help people aged 60 years and over :
- act as the focus for the views of the over 60s in Milton Keynes
- represent those views as fairly and inclusively as possible
- make sure that the voice is effective
Senior Voice MK works on issues raised by older people at Age UK Milton Keynes’ Annual Forums and provides feedback on progress. Members invite speakers to their quarterly meetings; recent topics were "MK General Hospital", "social services" and "transport". Age UK Milton Keynes provides information and secretariat, but Senior Voice MK is independent of the charity.
Senior Voice MK would like to hear the views of older people about local services (good and bad), or about any issues which affect their quality of life. However, the Senior Voice MK volunteers are not able to act as advocates or give advice on individual cases.
Ring us on 01908 550700 for more information.
