Changes to the Age UK North Staffs Information and Advice Service

Due to a lack of funding at present, one of our services, the Information and Advice service, has been further reduced following a series of funding cuts in recent years. From April 2018 until further notice we can no longer offer advice or support in making claims for benefits or applications for Attendance Allowance, Blue Badges, etc.

Charity Chief Executive Peter Bullock said, “We’re very saddened that this much-needed and successful service has to close. Thousands of local older people have used the service over the years, and many have come to rely on our advisers to help them be more independent and have a better quality of life.”

Our other services are unaffected.

We have launched an urgent appeal for financial support as a result, as for many years, we have provided a free and confidential service, helping thousands of local older people. The service has been used over 36,000 times in the last 6 years, and since 2011 has secured at least £9,330,000 in extra income to go into local older people’s pockets.

We are seeking your support so that we can keep the service open when current funds will be exhausted. We’ve put together a Fundraising Supporters Pack full of information and guidance to help you make the most of your efforts. Click here to find out about our fundraising.
