Why we need your help

"Ours is a charity which helps older people live their later lives as fully as possible.  For many, our day centres are the place they look forward to coming to, and in some cases, we are the only person they speak to in a week.

But the situation Covid19 has presented us with is so challenging, that support for even the most vulnerable of older people may be gone within a matter of months.  We receive no funding from local Government, and there is little financial support available from the national Age UK charity, so we have no-one looking after our future.  We really are on our own, and in desperate need of help."

John Norley

CEO Age UK Medway

During the last year, Age UK Medway provided almost 200,000 hours of vital care to older people in its mainstream and specialist dementia day centres. It also gave 6,500 hours of care to vulnerable clients in their own homes, delivered over 9,000 hot, healthy meals to the front doors of others, and its Information & Advice service unlocked welfare benefits worth over £1.25 million pounds for local older people.

Quite simply, we are here for them today... but they need us to be there for them tomorrow.

If you are able to help in any way, we would be extremely grateful. These are challenging times for so many of us.  But for most of us, life will eventually return to normal. 

Please help us give that same hope to Medway's older generation.
