We are proud supporters of Age Concern in Liverpool & Sefton, the premier charity working with and for older people and carers in the community to help improve the quality of their lives.
Established in 1928, Age Concern is part of the Age UK network – Britain’s largest charity for older people – bringing together over 130 local organizations providing practical support to people in their communities.
The charity raises around £47 million a year through fundraising, and operates over 520 charity shops. Its direct services include companionship, nursing care and support, exercise, and various fun activities to help keep older people healthy, active and involved.
Throughout the pandemic, Age Concern’s Befriending Service has been important in helping older people in Liverpool & Sefton feeling vulnerable, lonely and isolated. Demand for the charity’s telephone friendship service has increased by as much as 290%.
Age Concern can be supported through volunteering opportunities, donations and legacies, all of which make a tremendous difference to the lives of older people in Liverpool & Sefton.
