We're a local charity working in the community to support older people, their families and carers. We want everyone to be able to love later life.

Who we are

Age UK Plymouth exists to care for and work with older people and their carers in and around the City of Plymouth to improve their quality of life through the promotion of choice, opportunity and independence. 

We offer a range of services to help older people feel more included in the community. Our current aim is to try and tackle loneliness in the Plymouth area through numerous activities and one off events

Where you can find us

Our main office and day centre is based in Mount Gould and our Active Ageing Centre is based in Plymstock.

How to get involved

You DO NOT need a professional to refer you to our service. Our activties and events are open to anyone. For our Day Care and Dementia Services please contact us for information.

How we are funded

As a charity we rely heavily on donations to enable us to continue to provide our services.

All money raised locally is spent locally supporting older people in Plymouth.

What we do

  • We give advice

    Our trained advisors offer free information and advice to older people and their families. In 2016 our advisers helped local older people to claim over £500,000 that they were entitled to.

  • We offer home help

    We offer home support services to help with shopping, cleaning and gardening. We help over 100 older people to get their food shopping every month.

  • We provide activities

    Our day centre has 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.

  • We run events

    We often run events open to the public as well as starting new activity sessions for older people.
