Age UK Dacorum was founded in 1984 and is an independent local charity and a company limited by guarantee. Our mission is ‘To promote the wellbeing of all older people and to help make later life fulfilling and enjoyable’.
We are a local Age UK partner. We receive funding from Hertfordshire County Council, Dacorum Borough Council, and other organizations. In addition to grants, we raise our own funds through fundraising activities and events.
Through our networks and partnership working, we work to safeguard the rights of older people, support their active involvement as citizens and seek the fulfillment of their aspirations.
We deliver this through our schemes and by actively involving older people in forums, debates, and consultations, enabling them to have their voices heard.
We also represent older people and their carers at a range of events to raise the profile of older people/carers and ensure that the services offered to reflect the needs of our clientele.
