What Service Does Age UK Provide?

Ageing can be incredibly challenging, but Age UK provide services and support at a national and local level to inspire, enable and support older people. With the over-60s growing faster than any other age group in the population, the role of Age UK is becoming increasingly important. 

Working with their national partners and local Age UKs, they help keep older people informed so that they can make the best decisions for them. For instance, they help elderly people claim the benefits they’re entitled to, such as Carer’s Allowance, Attendance Allowance and Pension Credit. 

Age UK also has a network of around 450 shops, selling an ever-changing range of goods – many of which they rely on the good will of the community to donate. These shops are run by volunteers and provide a large portion of the funds for the charity.

To deliver effective support to the elderly community, Age UK provide:

  • Advice & Information – They help millions of people know their rights and make the best choices for later life 
  • Health & Care – They put people in control of the care they receive, while working to improve services 
  • Wellbeing – They tackle loneliness, support people to stay independent and encourage them to stay active
  • Campaigning & Research – They run campaigns and conduct research to help improve later life for older people 
  • Community Support – They offer vital community support through their local network
  • International Support – Age UK’s international charity works in some of the poorest countries around the world

Do Age UK Charge for Their Services?

Age UK do charge for some of their services – any service that requires carers to visit your home will usually have an hourly cost. 

For example, more than 70 local Age UKs provide handyperson schemes that offer older people extra help with practical jobs. If an elderly person requires this service, they will be charged an hourly cost.

However, Age UK does provide a completely free, confidential national phone service which offers advice on everything from money and benefits to retirement and care.
