Regular donation

These are turbulent times – especially for older people. Your gift will help us support the most vulnerable, at a time when it's needed more than ever.

Since March 2020, we've helped to protect thousands of older people in over 20 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America. From initiating new emergency COVID-19 projects, to adapting long-running programmes – we've tailored our response to meet the needs of older people and their families.

In 2020/21 – with help from our supporters – nearly 1 million older people were directly supported through our community-based projects, receiving better health, care and support; almost 600,000 older people and their families received emergency humanitarian aid; and just over 1 million older people received a social pension for the first time. 1.6 million older people benefitted from new or improved government health and care policies that we campaigned for.

We can only continue this work thanks to donations from people like you.

Regular gifts are vital to help us plan long term support for older people and ensure our programmes are sustainable – please give an affordable amount each month.

How will my donation help older people?

Your gift will help older people who lack healthcare, a secure income, support in emergencies or the day-to-day help they need in later life. It will help people who are unable to live life with dignity simply because of their age.

You’ll help us train volunteer carers to visit homebound older people; to improve access to healthcare; and to fund free cataract operations. You'll help us secure pensions for older people; to provide drought-resistant crops; and to campaign for older people’s rights, sometimes across entire countries. And when a disaster strikes, you’ll help us save lives.

How funds are spent

For every £1 in 2019/20, we spent:

  • 72p on projects helping older people
  • 17p on support for our global implementing partner, HelpAge
  • 8p on fundraising and office management
  • 3p on influencing, advocacy and communications

This includes funds received from individuals, institutions and grants.

Your gift will support Age International’s work worldwide where the need is greatest.

About Age International

We specialise in helping older people in some of the world's poorest places, working with in-country partners through a localised approach. We are part of Age UK and we are the UK member of HelpAge, a global network supporting older people in 85 countries.

We support older people to have a better quality of life and fight against the injustices that older people experience, just because of their age. How do we do this? We first of all ensure that older people’s experiences, voices and needs are at the heart of everything we do. Through our partners, we run programmes which give long-lasting, practical support to older people in some of the poorest communities. We help other charities and organisations to think about older people and include them in their work. And we support campaigns for policies and practices that have the potential to improve millions of older people’s lives.

Our vision is a world in which women and men everywhere can lead dignified, health and secure lives as they grow older.
