General information

If you think Age Concern is only for the very elderly, think again - we are for everyone over the age of 50 and also for those who support or care for those over this age. Our values mean that this organisation will not simply cut and reduce services, in fact the Trustees of our organisation have been clear that we must prioritise any savings so that protect our direct delivery to the client group of our area. We know that the Big Society is a concept that is such an important part of the Prime Ministers' thinking; it cannot be achieved without voluntary organisations like ours. Or, yet again, older people and their local groups will be left behind because older people do not shout or work in `sound bites'. We should all have the courage to celebrate longevity and assist in keeping services going that enable the older generation to live a fulfilling high quality of life. The people we work with are not lonely victims they are educated, funny, rude, outrageous and only limited by the society in which they live. If we all want them to enjoy their lives we can choose for that to happen. Why not start by demanding more for them, especially more choice, and why not say to the United Nations that the internet should be a human right for older people instead of constantly underestimating their ability to use it. How arrogant some of us are if we assume they will not grasp information technology, just think, they are the generations that flew Spitfires, invented radar, sonar and nuclear energy, took us to the moon, discovered planets, created the internet and unravelled the mysteries of our DNA. The internet is literally child's play after that. Since the presidential elections and the oratory of Barak Obama `change the world' has become a part of so many politicians speeches, maybe we should remember the people who are over 60 today, actually did change the world, culturally, scientifically and morally. We surely we owe them something for that?
