Age UK West Cumbria is an independent local charity established in 1993. We are a full member of the Council of Ageing and of the Age Concern Federation. Age Concern Northwest Cumbria has joined forces with Age UK - the new national charity combining Age Concern England and Help the Aged in a new partnership for the future.
Age Concern Northumberland will continue to raise awareness of its work with people over the age of 50 throughout the County, with a view to engaging them in its activities both as supporters of, and participants in, the provision of its services and the development of its resources. It will continue to provide support for the most vulnerable older members of the community, taking into account the changing nature of the population. It will address the diverse aspirations, expectations and needs of older people and campaign on their behalf. It will continue to work to influence policy makers in the region on such issues
