Description

Age Concern New Zealand is a charity dedicated to people over 65, their friends, and whānau.

We promote dignity, wellbeing, equity and respect and provide expert information and support services in response to older people's needs.

We are active and vocal on relevant issues and work to ensure older people / kaumātua stay connected with their family, friends and community.

We host social events and outings, and run different exercise classes - something for all levels of fitness and ability.

In partnership with Waka Kotahi, we run Staying Safe driver refresher courses.

Local Age Concerns throughout New Zealand are the first port of call for older people in their communities. Age Concerns offer expertise and knowledge of all available services for older people as well as social activities.

Age Concern New Zealand provides national support to local Age Concerns. Age Concern New Zealand also informs the government and other national bodies on issues of concern for older people.

If you, or anyone you know, needs our help please contact us.
