Age UK Suffolk is a local, independent charity, working with and for older people in Suffolk.
Everything that we do is centred around improving the lives of older people across Suffolk.
Last year we supported around 21,000 older people and their families with vital services, support and information, often when they do not know where else to turn.
How we are funded
This year it will cost around £2million to deliver our vital services of information & advice and befriending, alongside our community development work, dementia day centre and home help services.
All of our income has to be generated ourselves, through fundraising, our shops and our easier living and insurance products. We do not receive any statutory income.
This means that working with local businesses and the communities in which we live, is vital in ensuring that we can continue to offer these services and support in an ever changing, and ageing society.
