Age UK Mid Devon started with only a few staff and volunteers, and has grown to over 11 staff and over 100 volunteers.

Its volunteers are amazing individuals of all ages and skills who give their time free to help others.

Working in the whole Mid Devon District Council area with a growing population and increasingly ageing profile, Age UK Mid Devon seeks to ensure that people have easy access to information and services at the right time and in the best way.

From information and advice to professional legal advice, Age UK’s services ensure that help is always to hand.

So, help make a difference. Age affects us all, so help someone who may be lonely, isolated or needs a bit of help or support.

Donate today, fundraise, attend the events and celebrate this momentous year.

£1,000 pays for 20 older people in Devon to have a full benefit check and a visit from a volunteer to help complete disability benefit forms.

The result can be an increase in income of several thousand pounds, meaning a better standard of living.

£500 pays for 25 people who live with dementia to have day opportunities and for carers to take a break knowing their loved one is safe.

£250 pays for IT classes for 100 older people to help tackle social isolation and increase community engagement.
