“Times are changing massively for both charities and older people. “It is a hard time to be either, so our approach to ensuring what we deliver makes the right impact with the right funds has never been more important. "Age UK Sunderland staff do an amazing job to support older people across the city and achieve this through their passion and enthusiasm. “I am thrilled to be leading such a great organisation and team.

"It is all-important to me to see respect and dignity afforded to older people, as I would want it extended to me. Our services need to give older people that opportunity, as well as support, care and compassion”.
