 Man and woman discuss paperwork

We have launched an urgent appeal for financial support as a result of serious and detrimental funding cut-backs, for our Information and Advice service.

For many years, Age UK North Staffordshire has provided a free and confidential Information and Advice service, helping thousands of local older people every year.

However we are now facing the real possibility of closing it down due to funding cuts from the County Council, Newcastle Borough Council and Stoke-on-Trent NHS commissioning who no longer want to fund the service.

We are seeking your support so that we can keep the service open after the end of March, when current funds will be exhausted, through personal donation or fundraising for us . This could be an office whip-round or an organised event, so we’ve put together a Fundraising Supporters Pack full of information and guidance to help you make the most of your efforts. 

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, which will also have helped the local economy. Read Sarah’s Story to see how we have been able to help local older people live well and independently at home.
