Information and advice

We know that growing older doesn't come with a manual. That's why we provide free information and advice to help you on topics as diverse as claiming benefits to care homes.

Main topics

Key Sections

  • Benefits & Entitlements

    Every year, millions of pounds in benefits - money intended for people on low incomes - are unclaimed by older people in Northern Ireland.
  • Pensions

    Advice on pensions, annuities and retirement planning.
  • Home Safety

    Information on keeping safe at home, including gas and fire safety, protecting yourself from scams and dealing with floods.
  • Housing Options

    Information on housing options - staying in your own home, moving in with family, renting, or sheltered housing.

A small favour

All the information and advice we provide on the website is free and completely independent, as is our Advice Line that is open 365 days a year.

But demand is going up. We are an ageing population and more people than ever are coming to us for support, which is why we need to ask for help.

If you are able to, just a small gift today could help us reach even more older people wherever the need is greatest.
