With your help we hope to raise £45,000.

Age UK Essex are urgently looking for support to ensure we can continue to deliver the vital local services we provide.

The affects of the pandemic are continuing to hit Age UK Essex. As an independent charity, donations are relied upon to enable us to provide help to isolated elderly people and continue our essential work. The need is great and as we see a significant downturn in forecast income, donations are more important than ever.

A donation today will help support us to continue to provide services to the most vulnerable people in our community. 

Befriending
Our free Befriending service reaches the most vulnerable and helps alleviate social isolation and loneliness and is especially valuable at this difficult time. For many of those who use our Befriending service this will be the only contact they have with the outside world. Our Befriending and Volunteer team help our amazing volunteers with nearly 700 friendship calls to older people across Essex every week. 

Information and Advice
Our free and confidential Information & Advice service provides a lifeline to vulnerable people, concerned relatives, family members and neighbours. Advisors can help people to confidently navigate some of the most difficult questions and situations that arise. They are experts in giving the support needed, as well as accessing services that can help with a variety of urgent needs such as shopping, prescriptions, food parcels, help at home and benefits. During this last year our Information, Advice and Advocay team continue to support older people, their families, friends and carers with free and confidential assistance with over 5,000 enquiries.

Donate now and change a life where you live. 

The ask is simple – please donate whatever you can to help us provide free life changing support to older people in our communities. 

Thank you for supporting us.
