Age UK South Lakeland is passionate that everyone should have the opportunity to be able to make the most of later life, whatever their circumstances, wants and needs.
We work with local older people to help them retain their independence and exercise real choice in their lives.
Who we are
We are an independent charity and have been operating locally since 1978. We have been a brand partner of the national charity Age UK since April 2010. Our services cover the whole of South Lakeland, and our impact locally is driven by the passion and dedication of our team of over 50 staff and over 200 volunteers, as well as our ability to raise much needed funds to sustain our work now and in the future.
Our purpose is to work with local older people to help them retain their independence and exercise real choice in their lives.
We aim to do this by:
- Delivering services that help to meet the needs of older people and fit with the other local services in the communities in which they lives
- Informing and advising older people of their rights and options
- Advocating for and on behalf of older people on issues which matter to them as individuals or communities, consistently and constantly to ensure we fully understand their needs.We make a difference to the 18,000 people who use our services every year.
