About Us

INSPIRING LIVES AND CHANGING FUTURES

It’s what we’ve been doing since 1886, in one form or another!

We passionately believe that every child and young person has the right to achieve their full potential, whatever their background or circumstances – and, as a result, we work with over 6000 children, young people and families in the North West of England every year.  We work in the heart of communities – often in partnership with other organisations – to end family cycles of deprivation, drug and alcohol abuse, lack of self-esteem, youth crime, teenage pregnancies and broken families.

As a result, we help to strengthen individuals, families and communities so that children and young people can lead healthy and meaningful lives, with the opportunity to succeed in school, to grow up to enjoy healthy relationships, to have access to training and employment opportunities and to be successful in the world of work.

About Us

Age UK Lancashire aims to make a positive difference to the lives of all older people in the county and make later life a more fulfilling and enjoyable experience.  

We work with older people over the age of 50 years within the county of Lancashire.  However, we prioritise our services and support within those districts where there is no other Age Concern organization or Group or, if there is, an effective partnership is established.  We work in Burnley, Chorley, Lancaster, Ribble Valley, Rossendale, Pendle, West Lancashire and Wyre & Fylde.
