Charity registered in Scotland SC047184
Our mission at Independent Age is to make sure that as we grow older, we all have the opportunity to live well with dignity, choice and purpose.
Through our national and local services and our Grants Fund, we work in partnership with individuals, charitable trusts and businesses large and small, offering older people opportunities to connect with their local communities, providing free impartial advice and, crucially for the future, demonstrating a strong campaigning voice.
2021 meant more challenges for older people and our charity, from the ups and downs of a seemingly open-ended pandemic to the rising cost of living. We carried on, delivering the advice and services older people really need and, where we could, connecting people face to face again – something we know is so crucial to wellbeing.
As our transformation programme continues, those challenges have confirmed how important building a strong, sustainable charity is to those who need us. We will continue to amplify the voice of older people and raise issues with government – and with everyone, of whatever age, who wants to live in a society that values its older population fully. And we will look to focus our future work to help older people stay financially independent.
