Age Concern Southend are a small, independent charity who work from their offices on Hamlet Court Road 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, telephone befriending service, wheelchair hire, free hearing aid batteries, social groups and fitness classes.

In 2018 we opened the Haven Community Hub in the beautifully renovated Grade 11 listed building, formerly the Havens department store .The Haven is a safe welcoming place where people can socialise, join in with support and leisure groups and take part in activities to keep fit and active.


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