Age UK is the countrys 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.
A world where everyone can love later life
Our vision is ambitious. It will not be easy to get there, and it wwill not be a quick journey, but we believe it is 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.
Our family also includes Age Cymru, Age NI and Age Scotland, as well as Age International, with whom we support vulnerable older people in more than 40 countries worldwide.

Almost one million people are living with dementia today. Tragically, not one of them will survive. Alzheimer’s Research UK exists to change that.
As the UK’s leading dementia research charity, we are working to revolutionise the way we treat, diagnose and prevent dementia. And then, we will find a way to cure it.
To do this, we’re investing in the best research, powering the most forward-thinking scientists and joining forces with world-class organisations. With your support, we promise we will not stop until dementia can no longer destroy lives.
We are Alzheimer’s Research UK. We exist for a cure.
Blind Veterans UK supports nearly 5,000 ex-Service men and women who suffer from sight loss. We help these veterans to learn vital life skills, as well as supplying free rehabilitation, training and the support they need to live independent lives. It doesn’t matter when a veteran lost their sight – we can help.
Many of our veterans feel isolated within their own communities. We help them by organising activities and events such as lunches, reunions and clubs, which gives them the opportunity to make new friends and be part of a community with a shared experience.
We know there are 45,000 veterans out there who still need and deserve our help. Your Payroll Giving donation can ensure that no one who has served our country should face blindness alone.
Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support for families through our Admiral Nurse service.
Admiral Nurses are specialist dementia nurses who give much-needed practical and emotional support to family carers, as well as the person with dementia.
There are currently over 270 specialist dementia nurses working across the UK. Our ultimate aim is to have 800 nurses supporting families UK-wide and you can help make this happen.
Welcome to Rethink Mental Illness. We help millions of people affected by mental illness by challenging attitudes, changing lives. Here is just a selection about what we do, and what it means for you.
Who are we?
We believe a better life is possible for millions of people affected by mental illness.
Over 40 years ago, one man bravely spoke about his family's experiences of mental illness in a letter to the Times and in the process brought together hundreds to talk about their experiences of mental illness and support each other.
Today we directly support almost 60,000 people every year across England to get through crises, to live independently and to realise they are not alone. And we change attitudes and policy for millions.
Everyone should feel comfortable getting the support they need for issues with drugs, alcohol or mental health.
We work with people on their own goals, whether that’s staying safe and healthy, making small changes or stopping an unwanted habit altogether. We give people support in a way that’s right for them either face to face in their local service, community or online.
We provide a free and confidential service without judgement to more than 100,000 people a year.
We use our expertise to improve the help available and raise awareness around drugs, alcohol and mental health so that more people can get support.
