About Age Uk
About This Shop
Because there is strength in numbers, Age Concern and Help the Aged have joined forces to become Age UK – so that we can be here for everyone in later life. With more than 330 Age UKs and Age Concerns, we can give you the vital services you need locally.
Age UK has a vision of a world in which older people flourish. We aim to improve later life for everyone through our information and advice, campaigns, products, training and research
A world in which older people flourish is a world in which older people will:
be equal citizens with equal rights
have enough money for a secure and decent life, and have access as consumers to the products and services they need at a price they can afford
have access to the healthcare and social care they need
have the opportunity to live healthier longer lives and to enjoy a sense of well-being
live in homes and neighbourhoods that are safe and comfortable and which enable them to lead fulfilling lives have opportunities to participate and contribute as volunteers, active citizens, good neighbours, family members, and workers
enjoy the benefits of longer life, wherever they are in the world.
What’s in store?
We have around 500 Age UK charity shops throughout the UK, offering a wide and ever-changing range of goods at very reasonable prices. In addition to being a vital source or income, the shops provide a gateway to the whole charity and they are recycling centres too.
