Age UK Waltham Forest is an independent local, user-led charity supporting older people in the London Borough of Waltham Forest. In 2018-2019 our team of 14 part time staff and 187 volunteers supported in excess of 4,600 older people in our Borough through our range of Services.
We are members of the Age UK federation but are a totally independent charity, separate from the national body, and have to raise all our own funds for our work.
Our vision is to see an inclusive, respectful and supportive society in which each older person leads a good quality, enjoyable and fulfilled life, and in their later years is supported to live independently at home for as long as they wish.
We aim to promote and enhance the well-being and quality of life of all older people, especially at those points in life when the right help can make a significant difference.
