About Age UK Nottingham
Age UK Nottingham & Nottinghamshire is the new name for Age Concern Nottingham and Nottinghamshire
Age UK Nottingham & Nottinghamshire have partnered with Age UK, the new force combining Age Concern and Help the Aged nationally.
Age UK Nottingham & Nottinghamshire is the largest independent local charity providing direct services to older people from all communities and backgrounds in the city and county. We aim to enhance the quality of life and promote the well being of all older people.
As part of the family of over 400 Age UK and Age Concern charities we work at a local level for all older people. We support our local communities with a range of dedicated support services, from Advocacy and Support at Home, to Advice and Information and Home Safety.
The Age UK Nottingham & Nottinghamshire Philosophy
Age UK Notts is committed to our Mission Statement which is to “enhance the quality of life and promote the well being of all older people in Nottingham & Nottinghamshire”. This is why the charity exists and all staff and volunteers, no matter what their role is, contribute to the fulfillment of this mission.
Age UK Nottingham and Nottinghamshire (Age UK Notts) is very much a people orientated business driven by core values that focus on dignity and respect for older people – and for our employees and volunteers. Which means we are looking for individuals who can safeguard this commitment. We aim to ensure that all people with whom we work are valued for their contributions and are given the opportunity to realise their full potential within the organisation.
The quality of what we do is very important. That is why we gained the Investor in People accreditation in 2001; we see our staff and volunteers as the key to our success. We have also achieved the Community Legal Services quality mark for our advice services and, in 2007 we obtained accreditation under the internationally recognised quality standard (ISO 9001) and the international environmental standard (ISO 14001). We have also passed the Age UK quality assessment, Quality Counts, which is recognised by the Charity Commission which has meant that we received a “Members Quality Standard” endorsement from them in 2008.
Furthermore, in line with current legislation, as an employer of staff and as a de-ployer of volunteers, we aim to ensure that all job applicants, staff and volunteers do not experience unfair discrimination. Recruitment, selection and other procedures try to ensure that individuals are given equal opportunity in recruitment, training and promotion, and are treated on the basis of their relevant abilities and merits according to the requirements of the job.
In 1942, Age Concern Nottingham and Nottinghamshire was born, with only a handful of committed volunteers. Today, Age UK Nottingham & Nottinghamshire employ over 125 staff, have over 300 dedicated volunteers and we help over 50,000 people every year.
This last year has seen continued growth of the charity with more services and support being given to local older people. Age UK Notts has provided direct support and independent advocacy services, benefit advice services and enabled over £1.6 million of improvements to be carried out to older people’s homes in the city through our Housing services. As well as this we continue to encourage older people to have a voice, either directly or via Age UK Notts.
A new Age UK Business Directory initiative has also been established, the first web-based directory to be developed specifically for older people by Age UK. The website is designed to connect older people to a wide variety of local companies and organizations offering reasonable, reputable and reliable products and services. It can be found at
