Our vision and mission statement

Age UK Northamptonshire cares for older people.  We help them to make the best of life and to have a secure and dignified old age.

Older people will recognise us as an independent charity, part of their community and the organisation that they can depend on, more than any other, to treat them like a human being.  The Charity provides a range of services to improve the quality of older people's lives, promote independence and prevent them from falling into frailty, poverty and isolation.  We are recognised as the foremost local charity for older people in the county and as an organisation that older people can depend on to treat them with dignity and respect.

Every year we help around 18,000 people and their families in Northamptonshire by providing a range of services that improve their quality of life.  Our main offices and day centre are based at the purpose-built William and Patricia Venton Centre in York Road, Northampton.  Some of our workforce are based at Waterside House in Irthlingborough and we rely on the income of our eight charity shops in the county.

How we are funded

We rely on the vital support of individual donors and fundraisers, as well as contributions from local businesses and the income from our charity shops.  Charges for our services and contracts also contribute towards our costs.  Every £1 given to Age UK Northamptonshire supports the crucial help we provide in the county.  Money raised in Northamptonshire stays in Northamptonshire.
