We’re Age UK Gateshead an independent charity working to help our older residents, our vision is a world where everyone can love later life. We believe that living longer should be celebrated, everything we do is designed to change the way we age for the better. As we grow older we face new challenges, maybe even illness, loneliness or poverty. That’s why we’re here. We work tirelessly to help our older community through these challenges, we want to stop isolation and loneliness as well as helping them retain choice and control over their lives, enjoying life rather than enduring it.
