Age NI

Age NI is the leading charity for older people in Northern Ireland. Our society is ageing. More than 350,000 older people live here today and in the next twenty years, the number of people over 50 will increase by more than 30%.

Our vision is a world where everyone can love later life, and our mission is to help people enjoy a better later life.  We deliver care services, provide advice and advocacy, offer products and services, fundraise and influence our decision-makers to improve later life for us all.

Age NI wants to make people think differently about what it means to get older, because age affects everyone in different ways.
