About us

At Age Concern Auckland , we are committed to promoting wellbeing, rights, respect and dignity for older people.  Our vision is that older people thrive in an inclusive society for all ages.

Getting older is something we should all celebrate, but it can be tough.  With an increasing number of major life changes – a move into retirement, health challenges and the loss of loved ones – it is crucial that we have the support we need within our reach.

Age Concern Auckland is a Charitable Organisation dedicated solely to the over 65s and is one of the most significant providers of services across Auckland that connects, supports, empowers, celebrates and respects the older people in our community.

Each year we receive tens of thousands of requests for help ranging from those simply seeking advice and guidance to providing dedicated support to some of the most vulnerable older members living in our communities.​

Our work is divided into four key areas:

  1. Intervention Services that support older people suffering from abuse, neglect and in need of social support. These services work to move older people from a position of vulnerability to one of resilience
  2.  Ageing Well Services that assist older people to stay independent, healthy and active. Supporting older people to age in place and maintain their quality of life as they age
  3.  Social Connection Services that mitigate loneliness, promote community involvement and enable mobility. These services work hard to reconnect older people back into their local community
  4.  A dedicated Asian service to meet the needs of the growing older Asian community, that provides services and support in Mandarin and Cantonese.

 
We also work to inform local bodies and organisations on issues of concern for older people, ensuring older people are heard and represented in their communities.

We provide services across Auckland from Tuakau in the South up to Okura in the North.

History

We have been working to support older people in Auckland since 1949, when the ‘Auckland Old People’s Welfare Council’ was formed. In 1987 we changed our name to Age Concern. We recently entered another exciting stage of our history, when on 01 July 2019 Age Concern Auckland, Age Concern Counties Manukau and Age Concern North Shore amalgamated into a single organisation called ‘Age Concern Auckland’.  Amalgamation ensures that we can effectively address the impact of an ageing population and a doubling of the proportion of older people making Auckland their home over the next 10 or so years.
