We're a local charity working in the community to support older people, their families and carers. We want everyone to be able to love later life.
Who we are
Age UK Stafford & District was set up in 1990 to provide a befriending service and has grown over the years to meet the needs of older people. The organisation is managed by a Board of Volunteer Trustees. The work of providing the services we offer is carried out by both dedicated staff and volunteers. Alongside the provision of services the organisation continues to seek ways of supporting older people and developing new services.
Our Vision Statement is:
Meeting the needs and aspirations of the over 50's in an ever changing environment.
Our Mission Statement is:
To offer a range of services in our local community which retains the values, independance and well-being of the over 50's to achieve an improved quality of life.
