How we are funded

We rely on your support to keep serving the community. We are supported by donations from the public, income from our charity shops, and some charitable grants.

What we do

  • We give advice

    We know that growing older doesn't come with a manual. That's why we provide free and confidential information and advice for older people, their families and carers.

  • We offer home help

    Through EveryDay Care & Support, we provide care and support to over 400 individuals, enabling them to live safely in their own homes.

  • Dementia Services

    We help people with dementia and their carers to live fulfilling and rewarding lives. Our specialist dementia services help people living with dementia to make more of later life.

  • We provide activities

    We run a wide range of activity groups and events, such as lunch clubs and exercise classes, giving older people the opportunity to keep fit, socialise, or learn a new skill.
