Age International is the only UK charity working with and for older people in over 30 developing countries. We exist to change the world for older people: to respond to the needs, challenges and opportunities that arise from global ageing, by reducing poverty, improving health, protecting and promoting rights and responding to emergencies in low and middle-income countries.
Our vision is of a world in which women and men everywhere can lead dignified, healthy and secure lives as they grow older, and can say:
- I am given the help and information I want in emergencies
- I have the income I need, and enjoy the best possible health and care
- My voice is heard by decision makers
- I am safe and secure, free from all forms of discrimination, violence and abuse.
