Transforming services and delivering social change

Campaign with us

We asked you to help save Attendance Allowance and encouraged you to talk as part of the Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness. We are also continuing to put pressure on the Government to invest in social care to help the 1m older people who struggle with little-to-no support.

For more information call Age UK on 0800 169 8787.
We're open Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
