Age UK Teesside are Moving
Age UK Teesside is on the move, as we gear up to increase our range of services to older people in Middlesbrough, Stockton, Redcar & Cleveland and Hartlepool.
We are selling our headquarters building in Borough Road, Middlesbrough and moving management and staff to a new HQ in the nearby TAD Centre.
All services for older people in Middlesbrough will now be delivered in community locations.
Age UK Teesside is planning to develop and expand services including dementia care, social activities, befriending for isolated and lonely older people and advice including claiming for benefits. A new project to tackle hoarding has already begun.
A new Age UK Teesside charity shop in Hartlepool is also in the planning stage.
Age UK Teesside Chair of Trustees Hannah Bows said: “Teesside is facing a huge increase in the numbers of people retiring and entering old age, so the demand for our services is going to increase.
“This move puts us in a strong financial position to help deal with the many challenges facing older people.”
The Borough Road building is expected to be converted to student accommodation.
Our move of headquarters is planned for July. We will update you as soon as an exact moving date is confirmed.
The innocent Big Knit is back and this year Age UK Teesside have a target of 2,000 little hats to top the innocent smoothie bottles and raise money for older people in winter. We can supply wool for those who need it and you can find knitting patterns in our monthly newsletter or at official Big Knit website.
