Age Concern Southend are a small, independent charity who work from their offices on Hamlet Court Roadx Westcliff. Our charity began in 1974 as Southend Older People’s Welfare and have been helping older people in our community ever since.

We currently provide general advice and support, wheelchair hire, befriending, community clubs, hearing aid replacement, day care and social and fitness activities.

In February of 2018 we merged with Club 50+, a community club providing arts, sports and social activities to the over 50’s in Southend which is now located in our  community hub, The Haven. The Haven also offers a variety of services for older people including podiatry, day care and dementia support, stop smoking support, housing information, hairdressing and reflexology.

Age Concern Southend currently befriend around 300 people, have about 300 older people regularly attending our community clubs and on an average day we receive around 50 calls from older people looking for a little help and support. We are always happy to help with all aspects of growing older.

With your support we will make Southend a better place to age.
