Welcome to Age UK Thanet

Promoting the well-being of older people and helping to make later life a fulfilling and enjoyable experience.

Women at tableAge UK Thanet, formally known as Age Concern Margate, has been improving life for older people in the area for over 60 years.

Our mission and vision is to improve later life for everyone in the Thanet area by providing information and support to help older people cope and adjust to the needs and changes of their current environment.

We aim to do this by providing day opportunities and clubs in our Day Centre and at other venues to facilitate social contact and stimulation.  This helps to reduce isolation and loneliness by maintaining and restoring independence.
