Age UK - advice and Information service - Barking and Dagenham

We operate an advice and information service which is free, independent and confidential to older people, their relatives, carers and friends. We provide information on issues affecting older people such as welfare benefits, community care, leisure and health.

For Information and Advice Enquiries, or to make an appointment please call us between the hours of 9am – 3pm.  When you first contact us we shall take your details for a referral. If an Advice Worker is available they will carry out a quick Initial Assessment.  This helps us to fully understand your circumstances and ensure that we provide the most appropriate level of support tailored to your individual needs.
