Age International is a charity, helping older people to live with dignity in some of the world's poorest countries.

We support older people in developing countries by improving livelihoods, health and healthcare; providing age-friendly emergency relief; and by challenging attitudes, influencing decision-makers and changing policies. Learn more about our vision, mission and values by reading our strategy.
