Age UK Derby and Derbyshire is an independent local charity. We’ve been working in the local community to help older people for 30 years. We have 40 dedicated staff and over 100 volunteers helping us to deliver services and activities for older people in Derby and Derbyshire.
Our trained advisers offer free information and advice to older people and their families. We have legal advisers give free twenty minute appointments (please call to book).
Talking Points offers you face to face opportunities to speak to social care workers in the community and in your home. They are able to provide you with support to find the right organisation for your needs and help you access services. If you require more formal support, we can discuss the need for a full assessment.
