Age Concern Swansea is a vibrant, independent local charity - covering the City and County of Swansea, affiliated to Age Concern Cymru and Age Concern England.
Working at the heart of the community; responsive to older people\'s needs, effective and accountable, the organisation plays a major role and makes a real difference to older peopleâ€™s lives. Currently working in 25 partnerships with Local Health Board, Social Services, Local Authority and local Voluntary Organisations. We provide Information, Support, Services and Opportunities for older people\'s views/voices to be heard and help over 10,000 clients every year. The Board of Trustees (6), 200 volunteers and 46 staff deliver 13 projects that actively keep people well and in their own homes for as long as possible, reducing the need for expensive Professional Services. A new brand image has been designed to demonstrate our values - enabling, dynamic, caring, influencing.
Age Concern has 4 functions which are: Provisions of Services, Public Education & Advocacy, Partnerships & Co-operation, Innovation & Research.
Age Concern Swansea operates under its Constitution (adopted in 2002), which states that its objective is \"to promote the relief of older people in any manner which now or hereafter may be deemed by law to be charitable within the City and County of Swansea.\" It is managed by a Board of Trustees, who meet bi-monthly and are elected annually from Age Concern Swanseaâ€™s Membership.
We continue to work in accordance with the Mission Statement, agreed in 1995, \"to improve the welfare of older people in the area of benefit by working with and for them in ways commensurate with the Four Functions of Age Concern groups.\"
In particular, we aim to help local older people to stay well, emotionally and physically, and living in their own homes for as long as possible.
