Age UK Kensington & Chelsea is an independent, local charity working at the heart of the community to make sure that older people’s voices are heard, their needs are met and their independence is supported. We provide a wide range of services including befriending, practical help, information and advice and a variety of social and leisure activities.
We believe that older age is to be celebrated and that older people have a valued contribution to make. Our activities continue to be based on the local delivery of services reflecting the needs of our local community.
The overall aim of the Charity is to improve the wellbeing of older people by offering a range of services which help at critical points when increasing age may bring challenges such as deteriorating health, loss of a partner or friends and decreasing income. We are heavily reliant on a team of committed and dedicated volunteers who continue to help support them in the borough.
Age UK K&C actively combats loneliness by connecting isolated people within their community and supporting them to join group activities. Through our range of activities, courses and clubs we provide opportunities to meet like-mind people.
