What Help Age Does
HelpAge helps older people claim their rights, challenge discrimination and overcome poverty, so that they can lead dignified, secure, active and healthy lives.
In the past year, 750,000 older people and their families accessed our health, emergency and finance related services on 1.4 million occasions.
We helped two million older people claim their first pension payment – or receive an increased sum, and supported 50,000 older people to fight abuse and discrimination cases. Read more about our achievements.
We work to address the following issues that affect older people worldwide:
We’re listening to older people’s advice on dealing with climate change and getting their voices heard in the climate change debate. Read more about our work on climate change. Read more about our work on climate change.
Older people are one of the most vulnerable groups in emergencies, and they have particular needs. We’re getting older people included in humanitarian relief efforts.
Older people need appropriate and affordable healthcare, and governments need to prepare for an ageing population. Find out what we’re doing to improve older people’s health.
HIV and AIDS
We support older people affected by HIV and AIDS – either as carers or as people living with HIV. Read more about our work to mitigate the impact of HIV and AIDS.
We’re making people’s right to a secure income in old age a reality. Read more about our social protection work.
We’re demanding action to protect older people’s rights and helping them access their entitlements.
Access to decent work is a fundamental human right. Find out how we’re improving working life for older people in developing countries.
Spare us 5 minutes and help make the world better for older people.
Whether it’s giving money or lobbying Europe to donate more aid money for older people – any action you take will help make the movement on ageing stronger. Below are some ways you can help. Thank you!
