Age Concern Liverpool & Sefton is a charity dedicated to protecting and promoting the wellbeing of people aged 50+. Established in 1928, we provide a range of direct services which make life better for local older people including:
On everything from housing to pensions, help with heating costs to disability allowances and anything else you need. Advice is available by phone, appointment, drop-in or home visit.
Our Social Clubs are designed to provide friendship, fun, learning, new opportunities and a nice meal for local older people many of whom have difficulty getting out and about. Our Befriending and Reablement Service is also available, free of charge, to those people who are feeling vulnerable, lonely and isolated and live within Sefton. If you are housebound we can provide visits to your own home by one of our volunteers.
Care and Support
Ranging from high end specialist care in our nursing care home (for older people with a functional mental health diagnosis) to preventative services designed to keep older people active, engaged, healthy and active. Individual choice and the promotion of independence underpin everything we do. We also work with key partners such as the Royal British Legion, Liverpool Football Club, Liverpool Public Health, NHS Sefton and MerseyCare NHS Trust to ensure that older people not only keep well but have fun too.
Help to stay healthy, active and involved through a range of activities designed to meet the needs of different age groups and different interests.
Age shouldn’t be a barrier to achievement. We offer I.T. training and promote the learning of other life-enriching skills and talents.
We work tirelessly to raise funds locally – and with the help of hundreds of volunteers and our dedicated professional workforce – we ensure that each penny we raise is invested locally, in projects and services which add value and vitality to older people’s lives.
As a local charity we guarantee that we will:
- Provide the services which local people tell us they want and need
- Represent local people’s views accurately and powerfully
- Use all of the funds we raise to support local older people
In addition to delivering advice, activities and support services, Age Concern Liverpool & Sefton has its own separate trading company. Working with advant~AGE, we offer a range of reliable and endorsed products designed specifically to meet the needs of older people but with most products available for all ages to buy.
