Age UK Plymouth offers a free and confidential information and advice service for older people, their families and carers
We offer support and guidance through a process whereby needs will be identified and different choices will be offered to meet these needs. The aim of our information and advice service is to encourage people to take control and make choices about their lives.
We also provide information and advice via the telephone and we can advise people about other services that are available at Age UK Plymouth and other organisations across the city.
