Age UK is the UK’s largest charity dedicated to helping everyone make the most of later life. The over-60s is the fastest-growing group in society and there are more of us than ever before. Ageing is not an illness, but it can be challenging. At Age UK we provide services and support at a national and local level to inspire, enable and support older people. We stand up and speak for all those who have reached later life, and also protect the long-term interests of future generations. The Age UK network comprises around 170 local Age UKs reaching most of England. Our family also includes Age Cymru, Age NI and Age Scotland, as well as Age International, with whom we support vulnerable older people in more than 40 countries worldwide.
AgeUK is participating in WP2, WP4, WP5, WP6 and WP7 of the HEAT-SHIELD project.
