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

    Our trained advisers offer free information and advice to older people and their families. In 2016 our advisers helped local older people to claim over £300,000 in extra benefits that they were entitled to.

  • Community Support

    Community Support delivers community information and activities for people who are 50+. Our team is available Monday to Thursday from 9.30am-4.30pm on 0121 437 0033

    The project offers access to services across Sandwell and can support older people in a variety of ways.

  • Volunteering

    Come and join us a volunteer and help deliver vital assistance and activities across the borough.

  • Day Care Centre

    Our day centre has a wide range of activity groups and events, including lunch clubs and exercise classes, giving older people the opportunity to keep fit, socialise, or learn a new skill.
