About us

“I was able to talk openly about my worries. Very soon, I was getting support I didn’t know was available. This has been a lifeline for me”.

We believe everyone deserves to age well, and it is our mission to support and empower people in later years.

We have been empowering people in later years since 1950 and we provide excellent support services which are free and easily available.

Our services include providing advice and information about pensions, benefits, housing, blue badge applications and keeping you safe from cybercrime and fraud.

Our popular community friendship services offer one to one volunteer friendship, pen friending and groups and activities. Our emotional support services provide crucial wellness support for people living through loss, bereavement, mental health struggles and end of life care. And our specialist team are available to guide people through a dementia diagnosis and provide ongoing support to people and their carers through our specialist groups and services.


At Age Well East our clients and volunteers are at the heart of everything we do.

We are thrilled to share our story with you, showcasing the difference our transformative services make to the lives of individuals in Essex.
