Whether it be a query about pensions, housing, or help to find a trusted plumber, they can provide excellent and trusted advice and support. From empowering people to navigate the benefit system to putting them in touch with volunteer friends who are relatable and compassionate.
Whatever is preventing people from living happy, healthy lives, they are here to help them solve it.
Who they help
A fifth of 75 year olds are living below the poverty line, and many are unaware of the benefits and entitlements they could be claiming. they, through helpful conversation and mindful investigation, can help people in later years access vital extra funds or assistance, such as blue badge disability parking permit applications and finding local and trusted tradespeople.
They have been empowering people in later years since 1950. Today, they provide excellent support services designed to end loneliness and empower people to age well. These services are free and easily available to a wide range of people.
Last year, they empowered over 3,000 people to become happier and healthier. It is their goal to reach over 10,000 people by 2027.
