What we do

Age UK Salford is a partner in the Salford Age Friendly City programme of work. You can visit the Age Friendly Salford website for more information and also to find out about local events and activities.

Age UK Salford's Critchley Community Hub in Swinton is a fantastic example of a local Age Friendly place. It's a welcoming centre, you can pop in anytime for a cuppa, browse in the shop, sit in the gardens, have a chat and find out about local information and What's On at Critchley, where there are various social groups to join.

We know that not everyone can get around without help and that's why some of our services are for people who need more personal support. Our Humphrey Booth Day Centre in Pendleton is a purpose built, upbeat centre providing meals and socialising opportunities for people who need assistance. Our shopping and cleaning service enables people to live independently in their own home.

Age UK offer a telephone friendship service for people aged 60+ who feel lonely or isolated and would benefit from having a regular chat over the phone.

One of the simplest but most powerful ways you can help is to look out for your older, and possibly lonely, family, friends and neighbours. If you're not sure how to help them look, use our website to find out more information or contact us on: 0161 788 7300 or by our online form.

Many of our volunteers started out by contacting Age UK Salford for a different reason other than volunteering, then kept in touch with us and became part of the Age UK Salford family. One of our strengths is our volunteers, who are at the core of many of our services and we couldn't run places like Critchley Community Hub without them. In 2018, the team of volunteers were recipients of the The Queen's Award for Voluntary Services.

 There are many ways you make a contribution; you can donate, fundraise for us, or leave a legacy to help make a difference to older people in Salford.
