Independent Age is a growing charity empowering thousands of older people across the UK and Ireland to live more fulfilling lives. Founded 150 years ago, we are an established voice for older people and their families, committed to making a positive impact through the ‘ABC’ of advice, befriending and campaigning.
We address the three poverties affecting older people: financial poverty, poverty of information – ensuring they access the benefits and support they are entitled to, and poverty of social contact – offering befriending services to help alleviate isolation and loneliness.
Of the people we help, 1 in 5 are supported thanks to money left to Independent Age in Wills.
Independent Age is a member of the Remember a Charity campaign.
