Age UK Croydon

We are Age UK Croydon and our vision is a Croydon where everyone can love later life.

Our mission is to lead the way in empowering, enabling, supporting and connecting older people in the London Borough of Croydon to live well, healthily and independently.

Our Five Year Strategy (2018 – 2023) continues to set the course of our work and ensures we keep our clients at the heart of what we do.

We have an expert team of over 70  staff and over 100  volunteers who work together to deliver our extensive range of services and activities right across the borough.  With services spanning information and advice, financial advocacy, health, wellbeing, falls prevention, dementia support, one to one personal independence coordinators, befriending and social activities , Age UK Croydon offers a holistic solution for older people to access the services they require in one place.

We are independent of the national Age UK charity, but have passed its quality standard  allowing us to hold the Age UK brand, participate in national campaigns and add the voice of our clients to lobbying efforts, keeping older people’s rights on the national agenda.
