Age UK Hull operates totally independent of the national charity and is a Brand Partner. The main source of funding is derived from the Trading arm of the organisation which funds the core staff within the organisation. Fundraising is another income source to support services for older people within the organisation. The organisation is a Charity with a Chief Executive who is accountable to a Board of Trustees. We apply for grants to manage specific projects and the main source of our funding is provided by Hull City Council for Fall's Prevention, Day Opportunities, Advocacy and Befriending. We have been successful for the last 3 year years in obtaining grants from E-On, where fuel, food poverty and keeping warm in winter are the main focus. Age UK Hull supports any person 50+ on a number of levels and provides a generic information and advice service on range of topics which includes Benefit advice. The Ethos of the organisation is to promote healthy lifestyles and support older people to live longer more fulfilling lives. Older people are treated with dignity and respect and Age UK provide the opportunity for older people to access good quality advice. The Healthy Living Centre delivers a variety of programmes on diet, exercise, educational and social groups. The organisation also promotes healthy lifestyles through health information, advice leaflets, health awareness, campaigns, surgeries and events. The emphasis and focus is to capture as many older people and raise awareness about their entitlement to benefits and supporting older people to access the correct information and make informed choices regarding their future.

Who can access the services?

Any person 50+ would be able to make an enquiry regarding benefit uptake. An assessment would initially be undertaken of the service user's query to diagnose if the service user meets the criteria. Appropriate information, advice or support would then be tailored according the needs of the individual.

The Service is available to anyone in the HU1 to 9 area of Hull.

The service can be accessed at:-

Any person can access our service, who requires independent information or advice on any issue they face.
