Age UK is the country's largest charity dedicated to helping everyone make the most of later life. The over-60s is the fastest-growing group in society and there are more of us than ever before. Ageing is not an illness, but it can be challenging. At Age UK we provide services and support at a national and local level to inspire, enable and support older people. We stand up and speak for all those who have reached later life, and also protect the long-term interests of future generations. Our vision is a world where everyone can love later life. Our vision is ambitious. It won’t be easy to get there, and it won’t be a quick journey, but we believe it’s how things should be for older people and we work every day to achieve this. The Age UK network comprises around 170 local Age UKs reaching most of England.
To support a wide variety of local charitable causes in the Counties of Tyne and Wear and Northumberland
