About Independent Age
Whatever happens as we get older, we all want to remain independent and live life on our own terms. That’s why, as well as offering regular friendly contact and a strong campaigning voice, Independent Age can provide you and your family with clear, free and impartial advice on the issues that matter: care and support, money and benefits, health and mobility.
Regular calls and visits
With the help of our committed volunteers, we provide friendship services to relieve loneliness and isolation. These are delivered through phone calls, visits, telephone discussion groups and more, enabling older people to feel more connected to their local community.
We give free, impartial advice over the telephone for older people, their families and carers on issues such as care and support, money and benefits, health and mobility.
Information, guides and advice leaflets
We provide information for older people, their families and carers through our website and by distributing free printed advice guides and leaflets. Topics include money, support and care, housing options, health, personal life and future planning.
We want the UK to become the best country in the world in which to grow older. We campaign to ensure people can enjoy a financially secure, healthy, active and connected older age.
