CEO Salary

In 2022 the CEO of Age International was paid in the range of £100,000 - £110,000.

Salaries reflect the expertise of the staff employed and what the trustees feel is appropriate. Age International’s priority is to ensure that the lives of older people are improved as effectively as possible in low and middle-income countries. The trustees feel that it is important to ensure that we have the best people in place to achieve this.

How we protect your donations from corruption

Age International has rigorous monitoring and evaluation processes in place on a number of different levels.

  1. We have auditors to check our accounts at the end of every financial year. Download a copy of our Annual Report, at the top of this page, to see these audits in full.
  2. Our country offices and programme staff regularly assess programmes, ensuring that activities are relevant and sustainable and that money is being spent for its stated purpose.
  3. At a local level, we set up Older Citizen’s Monitoring Groups – groups of volunteers who have been trained to monitor programmes that are being delivered in their communities. They are older people themselves and they report back to programme staff if there are any problems.

Our legal name

HelpAge International UK is the registered name of the Charity, but we are publicly known as Age International. Age International is an independent charitable company limited by guarantee (registered charity number 1128267-8).
