Message from the Chair

It is an exciting time for all of us at Age Matters (former Age Concern Basildon). We have renamed ourselves to reflect the need to be an independent local charity with tailor-made services for older people in the Basildon Borough.

We believe charity begins at home: by supporting us you will be supporting local people.

We still have the same dedicated and highly motivated team of staff and volunteers who make endless effort to assist our clients: no matter whether it is finding a reliable handyman to fix a lock on a window; providing guidance with Benefit advice and form filling or by offering friendship to those who are alone. Last year we had helped more than 1,500 people who had called in for advice or service contacts. We are totally committed to helping older people to live a healthy, fulfilled and independent life.

Our organization is reliant on grants and donations in order for us to run our services. Your contribution will make a great difference to the lives of older people.
