Age Concern Dacorum

Age Concern Dacorum is a local charity which works to promote the well being of all older people and to help make later life a fulfilling and enjoyable experience. We aim to safeguard the rights of older people, support their active involvement as citizens and seek the fulfilment of their aspirations. We deliver high quality services and information accessible to all older people in Dacorum.

To achieve this mission we involve older people directly in defining needs, determining priorities and exerting control over the decisions which affect their lives.

We currently provide the following services: 11 Active Living Clubs, a Befriending & Telephone Service, a Hospital Discharge support scheme, a Handy Person scheme and a Carer's Suport scheme.

Our values are to be: caring; effective; enabling; influencing and innovative
