Age UK Northamptonshire is a local charity providing services and support to older people and their families in Northamptonshire. Everything they do enables older people across the county to love later life. They believe later years should be fulfilling years, whether you are going through tough times or want to socialise and make new friends, they are there to help.
They provide a range of services, some free and some for which there is a charge, all aimed at improving people’s quality of life. The charity’s support enables thousands of older people to live independently for as long as they wish and are able to. They work to prevent frailty, poverty and loneliness.
Information & Advice Service provides free, confidential and independent advice on matters that affect older people. The advisers carry out telephone benefit checks and help older people to complete Attendance Allowance forms. In the financial year 2021/2022 they helped people living in Northamptonshire claim £2.6m in welfare benefits.
Telephone Befriending is a free service aimed at older people living in Northamptonshire who feel isolated and are at risk of being lonely. A friendly volunteer will call for a regular chat on the phone. The charity tries to prioritise people who do not have family or friends they feel able to rely on.
Their Extra Help Team is funded to provide care for people in their own homes in the last weeks of life and also supports the patient’s family.
Age UK Northamptonshire also provides practical services that are provided by reliable, trustworthy staff who make a huge difference to people’s everyday life - Gardening Service, Handyperson Service, Toenail Cutting Service and Home Care Cleaning Service - and their three day centres give older people somewhere to meet friends, enjoy stimulating activities and feel looked after.

You don’t need to check the results every week, although you can if you want to. If you win, we will contact you to let you know. If we have your email, your prize winnings will automatically go into your make a smile lottery account; where you can then request a withdrawal, after which monies are then transferred into your bank account, or if you don’t have an email with us, a letter and cheque will be sent via post (please make sure that we have your up to date address).
