Age NI makes sure older people aren’t forgotten or left to struggle on their own. We’re here to listen, support, advise and help people to feel independent and secure in their own homes.

We helped change Robert's life

'I’m Robert, I’m 78. My life was turned around by Age NI over 14 years ago. Before finding Age NI I was in a very dark place. Age NI makes life better for me and many other older people.'

We’ll be here to give Helen advice

Helen ran out of oil just before winter. She was very worried and distressed because she couldn’t afford to fill the tank. Helen was able to get in touch with Age NI. We helped Helen access her Winter Fuel Payment so that she could arrange a delivery of oil. We also told Helen about other benefits she was entitled to and put her in touch with a local company offering home insulation grants.

We’ll be here when Carol needs support

Carol had lived alone for many years after her husband’s death. But a fall and bad arthritis meant she was finding it difficult to cope in her old farmhouse. We helped Carol look at all her options and supported her in finding sheltered accommodation. After she had settled in she told us, ‘I was dreading leaving home, but I love it here. I’ve made so many new friends, this is now home’.
