About Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin

We're Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin and our goal is to enable older people across the region to love later life.

Who we are

Age is different for everyone and, of course, the challenges and the demands are different for everyone, too. At Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin, we are many things to many people – a source of advice, information, companionship and support, to name just a few.

What we do

We work with and for older people to improve the quality of later life by:

  • Providing older people with information & advice to enable them to make choices.
  • Providing services to help older people remain independent.
  • Campaigning with and for older people, both locally and nationally.

Why we do it

  • Because we want to raise awareness of the issues affecting older people.
  • Because when older people are treated unfairly they can rely on us to say so, loudly.
  • Because we want to celebrate positive images of ageing.

John's story

Get help with a Surviving Winter GrantJohn came to us miserable and distressed having borrowed money to pay for storage heaters to warm his home. Fortunately we were able to help him out with a Surviving Winter Grant. He was able to clear the debt he had incurred for the heaters and to buy more coal for his wood burner.

John said 'You will never know how much your help was appreciated. When your cheque arrived I was in tears. I will always be grateful.'
