We are your local independent charity providing Information, Advice and Support for older people, their families and carers in Powys for many years (formerly Age Concern Powys).

Each year we help around 2,000 older Powys residents with over 5,000 issues. One of them could be you, a friend or a relative.

We provide a wide variety of services including:

 •   Free, confidential and impartial Information & Advice
 
•   Community Helper Volunteers
 
•   Friendship Calls & Visits
 
•   Simply Nails Footcare Clinics across Powys
 
•   Welfare Benefits Advice and Assistance
 
•   Community Advocacy
 
•   50+ Forums Influencing Services
 
•   Social Activities & Events
 
•   Dedicated Veterans Service
 
•   Rural Outreach Surgeries
 
•   Farming Community Support
 
•   Free Home Energy Checks
 
•   Advice and support to access care and support at home

We support older people locally by holding outreach surgeries across Powys to ensure that we reach those in rural farming communities.

We also visit older people at home, in hospitals and in care homes; wherever we are needed.

Together… with older people in Powys.

Why the community needs us
We help older people with many issues such as loneliness, care provision, applying for benefits, help with form-filling (e.g. disabled parking badges), scams advice and money worries.

We support older local Powys residents with complex life-changing decisions to ensure their voice is heard and they remain safe.

We support the family, carers and friends of older Powys residents.

Our services are much-needed and we are often the first place people come to, to get the help they need.

Could you gift £5 to support a local older person?

Please visit our Project Pages to find out more about Check in & Chat Telephone Befriending and our Community Helper Volunteers Service.

We want older people in Powys to know that our Powys community cares for them – your support will enable us to recruit, train and support more lovely volunteers to call or visit local older people once a week to help them through challenging times.

A donation of £5 towards our services will help older Powys people who are lonely and isolated to have a regular call or visit.

Our impact on the community
Last year we secured over £1 million of unclaimed benefits payments for older Powys residents!

Benefits advice is a much-needed service to help prevent older people in Powys living in poverty.

Our Simply Nails service has 8 Powys clinics for older people who struggle to cut their toenails; each year we provide over 1,500 toenail cutting treatments and 100 community sessions.

Our Friendship Services combat loneliness and increase wellbeing for many local older Powys residents.

We are here for you in Powys.
