Independent Age is a unique, long-established and growing charity for thousands of older people across the UK and the Republic of Ireland. Independent Age offers a ‘helping hand from a trusted friend’, tackling older people’s financial need and loneliness by offering information, advice and friendship.
Their help varies according to the type and extent of the individual’s need. But all older people receive: information about benefits and other issues affecting older people, ongoing support from our helpline and newsletters, membership of the Independent Age community, with the opportunity to participate in events and build friendships with other people.
Over 1,200 volunteers, and a small number of paid staff, help them offer a range of services across the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
