Independent Age, the older people’s charity, has announced a new partnership with 3i, the international investment company. The partnership will provide financial support to increase the impact of the UK charity, which offers free information and advice for older people and their families.
Independent Age was founded over 150 years ago, with a mission to enable older people to stay independent and live well with dignity, choice and control. As well as offering regular friendly contact and a strong campaigning voice, the charity provides older people and their families with clear, free and impartial advice on issues that matter: care and support, money and benefits, health and mobility.
Under the partnership, 3i will provide financial support and offer opportunities for staff to volunteer and join fundraising activities. The partnership will enable Independent Age to help even more older people to live independently with dignity, choice and control.
Biagio Borromeo, Director of Engagement at Independent Age, said: “We are delighted that Independent Age is partnering with 3i. Together we can help support older people to stay independent and live well, offering quality information, a strong campaigning voice, expert advice and regular contact through our friendship services. We look forward to building a successful relationship with 3i through the coming year.”
Kathryn van der Kroft, Communications Director at 3i, said: “We have been greatly impressed by the work that Independent Age does to support older people and are very pleased to announce our partnership with them. We will work with the charity in a variety of ways to help increase the impact of their activity and look forward to offering our employees the opportunity to support Independent Age’s work through volunteering and fundraising initiatives.”
