Our new 2020 strategy is ambitious: we want to increase the number of Helpline calls per year from 9,000 to 100,000; we aim to increase our information resource distribution from 100,000 to 1.3m per year; and almost double the number of friendship visits and phone calls we provide annually from 28,000 to 50,000.
If our ambitions match those of your organisation then we are perfect for corporate partnership. By working with Independent Age you will be demonstrating support for a growing UK charity that seeks to resolve some of the most acute issues facing older people today: loneliness, financial poverty and lack of information.
Read on to find out how you can get involved and help us ensure older people can live the lives to which they aspire.

“We have embraced the concept, aspirations and ambitions of Independent Age. We found the challenge of our ‘Active Week’ then inspired us to consider other ways to support Independent Age and this has led to an enhanced team spirit, many giggles & an enthusiastic team! We’re looking forward to new challenges throughout the rest of the year.”
Payroll Giving, or ‘Give As You Earn’ is a simple and tax effective way for employers to support our work to help older people live well with dignity, choice and control.
You choose the amount you would like to give and we will receive your donation directly from your pay. Your place of work must be set up for Payroll Giving in order for you to give in this way, so do check with your HR department. If your company is not yet set up to give through payroll, why not encourage them to do so?
As well as the benefits to employees giving in this way, companies can also benefits from supporting payroll Giving. Having just 1% of all staff giving through payroll means your company is eligible to receive a bronze Payroll Giving Award and those who are the most dedicated to supporting charities through this method can be put forward for an Excellence Award.
Whether you work with people who have always wanted to run a marathon, climb a mountain, take part in a muddy obstacle course or skydive, we can help you organise a number of exhilarating challenges. Catering for both individuals and teams, whoever decides to support Independent Age through a once-in-a-lifetime challenge will receive support and advice on training and reaching those vital fundraising goals.
