Age Concern Northern Ireland and Help the Aged in Northern Ireland have come together to create a new, independent charity for older people in Northern Ireland.
We believe creating a single new charity is the best way to ensure a better life for older people here: bringing together our resources will bring significant benefits for older people and will improve our ability to deliver essential services at a time of increasing need.
It is a sad situation but older people continue to be underrepresented in society and to experience neglect, live in poverty and be discriminated against. We are determined to fight to redress these issues to create a world where older people flourish. Our commitment continues to lobby government, provide valuable services and to campaign to improve the lives of older people now and in the future. We believe that through the continued support of our partners and donors and by putting older people at the heart of everything we do; this vision is achievable.
