We would also like to invite volunteers with an interest in seniors in the local community, to join our committee. We meet monthly for about 2 hours to discuss our ongoing service, and there are opportunities to become as involved in the charity as the individual would like.

Organisation aims and objectives

Age Concern Ayr is a registered Charity in Scotland dedicated to protecting and promoting the wellbeing of the those aged 55+ in South Ayrshire. Age Concern Ayr is 100% funded by the Charity Shop and Public Donation and all money raised is used for the benefit of residents in South Ayrshire. We have been operating in South Ayrshire since the opening of our Charity Shop in 1975. Very quickly The Charity Shop proved to be a great success, but something else was needed. Customers to the shop were looking for advice on a number of topics ranging from benefits to details on local lunch clubs. Although the shop volunteers at the time dealt with these enquiries as best they could, it was evident that there was a local need for more. With funds that had been raised from the Charity Shop it was decided that an Advice & Information Centre would be established and after 13 years of hard work by dedicated Volunteers this was realised in late 1987.
