The Age UK Group works to improve later life for everyone by providing life-enhancing services and vital support.
Growing older doesn’t come with a manual, so if you need information or advice on anything from health to housing, call our free national information line on 0800 169 6565. It's open 365 days a year from 8am to 7pm.
We also publish impartial and informative factsheets and advice guides.
Most of us want to remain independent - living in our own home for as long as possible, and keeping doing the things in life that we love the most.
Our products and services are tailored to the needs of people in later life. We offer travel, motor and home insurance; funeral plans; gas and electricity packages; holiday suggestions and offers, deals on computing and phones, and aids for the home, such as stairlifts and personal alarms.
Age UK is the only UK charity to focus research funds exclusively on later life.
That's because we believe that we should all be able to enjoy good health in later life, free from the diseases and disabilities associated with growing older and the consequences that they can bring about, such as social isolation, anxiety, frailty and loss of independence.
The research we fund is providing answers and we've already seen significant breakthroughs in many areas.
