Providing information is one of the most important things that we do.

Whether you want to find information for yourself, a family member or someone you know, we’re here to help.

We provide free assistance with welfare benefits, homelessness and housing problems, debt issues, financial issues associated with approaching retirement, consumer issues and legal advice.

We have staff and volunteers who speak Gujerati, Urdu, Punjabi and Bangla, and we run surgeries across the borough, as well as providing home visits for people with mobility issues.

We work closely with local professionals to offer legal support around Wills, Equity Release Information and Advice, and we provide an alternative office for the Department of Work and Pensions.

Drop-in sessions are available on Wednesdays from 1:30 - 4:30 at our Independent Living Centre at 131 Katherine Street, Ashton-under-Lyne OL6 7AW.

Are you one of the 58% of people in the UK who has not made a will? 
Make a Will Tuesday is a new pilot scheme run in partnership with Touch Solicitors. Many people have heard of ‘Will Aid’ which runs every November. Make a Will Tuesday follows the same scheme to support Age UK Tameside but runs every month! 
Writing a will is a crucial way of ensuring that your wishes are carried out after your death. It needn’t be a complicated process and it gives you the peace of mind that your family is taken care of when you are no longer here. 
When: Every second Tuesday of the month from 12th April, 2016 
Time: Appointments between 9:30 – 11:30 am
Venue: Age UK Tameside, 131 Katherine Street, Ashton-under-Lyne OL6 7AW
Contact: Call 0161 308 5000 or email 
Suggested Donation: £100 per will, of which 100% will go to Age UK Tameside, allowing us to continue to provide valuable support to local people in later life. 
Make a Will Tuesday is open to everyone residing in Tameside, regardless of age. 
Get in touch today to book your appointment...and make a significant difference to your community at the same time.
