In 2000, after a major review of how Age Concern was working, a new way was established of helping the many local organisations to work together with Age Concern England, the national body, to maintain the same high standards of service for older people.
The Age Concern Federation was born.
On 1st April 2009, Age Concern England and Help the Aged joined together to create a new charity dedicated to improving later life for everyone. From April 2010, this new charity became known as Age UK.
In May 2011, Age Concern Wirral became a brand partner of Age UK, and adopted the Age UK name. We are still a completely independent and autonomous local registered charity, responsible for raising our own funds and determining our own services, but we benefit from being part of an internationally recognised brand.
