Age UK Wiltshire and Age UK Southampton have joined forces to continue to offer much needed support to older people in their local areas.
Our organisations have a long history of providing vital services and support to older people to help improve their quality of later life. By combining our resources and expertise, we believe we can have an even greater impact on the lives of our clients. This expansion enables a strengthened service provision, shared learning, and the potential to develop new and important services, identified by older people within their local communities. The collaboration will ensure that the rising demand for frontline services and support will be met, not only in the Wiltshire and Swindon area but across the Southampton area.
We are committed to ensuring a smooth transition and to keeping all stakeholders informed throughout the process. We believe this merger will create new opportunities for growth and collaboration, and we are excited to embark on this new chapter together.
The Merger took place on the 1st April 2023 and our gratitude goes to all our supporters, volunteers, and staff who have helped make this merger possible. We look forward to continuing to work together to make a positive impact in the lives of older adults.
