What we do

Age International supports a range of work in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe. These are just some of the things we do to help people ageing in poorer places.

Emergency aid

Older people are particularly vulnerable during conflicts, crises and natural disasters - yet they are often forgotten. We help them to survive.

Fighting ageism

We all matter - no matter how old we are. Age International fights for people who have been marginalised because of their age.

Women's rights

Women experience ageism on top of sexism in later life. We aim to amplify older women's voices and protect the right to equality at all ages.

Protecting pensions and benefits

We campaign for pensions around the world. Where benefits do exist, we make sure there are no barriers to people claiming what they are owed.

Business investments

Our financial investment & business training helps people move away from physically gruelling labour and earn more money.

Providing care at home

Not everyone can be cared for by their family, which is why we train and support volunteer carers who visit extremely vulnerable older people in their homes.

Cataract operations

Our free cataract operations are helping to cure one of the world’s most common ageing eyesight problems, for some of the world’s poorest people.

Supplying glasses and walking sticks

Independence is important at all ages. Our free prescription glasses, adjustable walking sticks and hearing aids are helping to restore independence and confidence to older people worldwide.
