Age NI is the charity supporting older people in Northern Ireland. Each year we provide direct support to 30,000 older people to help them enjoy a better later life.

It’s a privilege to hear from Anne, David, Elsie, Nelly, John, Liam and Yvonne about the way Age NI has helped in their lives. Our vision is a world where everyone can love later life.

Their inspiring personal stories show how important it is for Age NI to be here. Day after day our teams are listening, caring and providing support to older people, their carers and families all over Northern Ireland.

Although we may face challenges like ill-health, loneliness or poverty as we grow older. That doesn’t stop us being ourselves. We still want to laugh, love and be needed. We want to stay independent and keep doing the things we love.

Everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy a better later life. That’s why Age NI is here. Call us today.
