Why your money counts

Your donation today could transform the life of an older person in need.

Whether it’s a one-off donation or pledge for a monthly gift that you decide to give, we promise that the donation you make to Independent Age today will be used to support older people facing financial hardship.

We aim to give older people more peace of mind with specific guidance around their finances as well helping them to tackle many of the other isolating impacts that financial stress can have on mental and physical health. Our telephone helpline team work hard to ensure we can support as many people as possible, but we need your help to reach more.

Why now?

  • There are 2.1 million people over the age of 65 currently living in poverty- with many more set to be plunged into further financial difficulty over the next year;
  • 500,000 more pensioners are in poverty now than in 2012

Many older people are proud and feel too ashamed or anxious to seek support. Financial stress can have devastating effects on their mental and physical wellbeing.

This is why Independent Age focuses its efforts on reducing poverty in older age. We work hard to ensure that, as we grow older, we all have the chance to live well with dignity, choice, and purpose.

Why make a regular donation?

A regular monthly donation means we can plan ahead for the future to provide vital services for older people in financial need. Our vision is for the UK to be the best place to grow old in. To do this we need continued funds to support our work improving the lives of older people in financial hardship.

Please give what you can and donate online now.

Thank you for your donation and for supporting Independent Age.
