Local support for local people

Did you know we are an independent, local charity? All our money is raised in Solihull and stays in Solihull to help local older people through our range of services, and vulnerable people of any age through our Community Advice Hubs.

Weekend Support - 21st & 22nd March 2020

Over the weekend you can continue to call Age UK Solihull for support on 0121 704 7840 if you have been affected by the Coronavirus. Age UK Solihull are receiving a huge amount of calls at the moment and are working hard to respond to everyone.

They will still monitor calls over the weekend and will deal with the most urgent calls as they come in. Any non-urgent calls will be dealt with as soon as possible. Please bear with us during this exceptionally busy time and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Coronavirus Update

Age UK Solihull is responding to the Coronavirus Pandemic and is continuing to support older people in our local communities. The way in which we deliver our services will need to adapt in this challenging time but older people and their health and wellbeing is at the forefront of everything we do. 

Sadly we have needed to close our four clubs but we are stepping up telephone contact with those who are lonely and isolated.

The Home Support Service is continuing to support those most vulnerable in their own homes and has stringent hygiene measures in place.

The Community Advice Hubs are both now closed for drop-ins, but we are still providing information and advice by telephone, email, or if absolutely necessary, face-to-face appointment. Please call 0121 709 7590 or email admin@solihullcommunityhub.org.uk for help. We will still offer services such as benefit form completion, debt advice, and health and wellbeing advice, but this will be carried out primarily by telephone.

The Age UK Solihull main line is open 9.00am – 4.00pm Monday to Friday and we are redeploying staff to ensure we can answer more calls. If you are an older person who needs information, advice, additional support or maybe just a chat please contact Age UK Solihull on 0121 704 7840.

Age UK Solihull has always received fantastic support from our local communities and we ask that you continue to do this. Think about volunteering - could you spare a little time to speak to an older person each week? We also need donations to be able to purchase older people the things they need when they can’t get out to do this for themselves or can’t get access to cash. And we need hand sanitiser gel for our workers working in older people's homes. If you can help contact us at info@ageuksolihull.org.uk.

We will keep our website updated.

Can you help us continue to support vulnerable people in Solihull, who need us now more than ever?

Age UK's coronavirus information page

  • Looking for support at home?

    Our Home Support Service is a chargeable service for people living in Solihull, who need help to do the jobs they are no longer able to do alone.

    We can help with jobs in and around the home including light housework, shopping, paying bills, escorting to appointments or social activities, dog walking and more.

  • Calling all drivers!

    We are looking for volunteers to join our friendly team and transport one or two older people from their home to one of our weekly activities, and back again after. It's a rewarding role where you can get to know the clients and see them benefiting from our services.

    Expenses are paid and you shouldn't need to change your existing car insurance.

  • Winter Warmth 2019/20

    The Winter Warmth campaign is offering free advice, information and practical assistance to all Solihull residents who need help staying warm.

    The helpline is open on 0121 704 8080 Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, offering help with a number of issues related to staying warm and well in the winter.

  • Challenge yourself!

    Tick an item off your bucket list and get sponsored to help Age UK Solihull to be there for older people who have no one else to turn to.

    Whether you want to run, jump, cycle, or take on an obstacle course, we can support you to raise funds to help us continue with our important work in Solihull.

Volunteer with us

Could you spare an hour or two each week to visit a lonely older person, help at one of our clubs, drive an older person to our classes, or provide information, advice and support? Donating your time can really change someone's life.
