Who We Are

Age Matters is a local registered charity in Basildon, Essex. We were formerly known as Age Concern Basildon but have recently renamed ourselves to become independent to focus our services for the older people in the Basildon Borough.

We were established in 1993 by our founder David Downton. Our key aim is empowering older people, enabling them to make informed decisions. This allows elderly people to live independently with support, choice, and dignity.

Our funding comes from generous donation from local businesses and individuals in the community.
