Age Concern - Jersey
WE ARE AGE CONCERN JERSEY
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to lead a fulfilling later life. We are hopeful that together we can create an Island where everyone can achieve this. We welcome everyone from 55+, whatever their needs, interests or circumstances, and act sensitively to all. We believe that growing old should be celebrated and we speak up for most islanders that have reached later life.
Age Concern Jersey is a Jersey based charity that supports the elderly in the community and also campaigns on their behalf.
- That there should be no ageism. Age should be recognised as a gift not a burden.
- That older people should be given respect and courtesy.
- That older people should have enough money to live on and not rely on hand-outs.
- That older people should be able to enjoy a sense of well-being in a safe and secure environment.
- That older people should have access to full health care.
- That older people should be valued and not treated as second class citizens.
- That older people should have a voice in the community.
Age Concern Jersey receives no financial support from the States of Jersey for the administrative operation of the charity and relies totally on the generosity of the local community to support its work. Age Concern Jersey is also not affiliated to any other charity.
Age Concern Jersey’s HQ is at Windsor House in Val Plaisant, St Helier. Opened by the then Lieutenant Governor, His Excellency Air Marshal Sir John Sutton, K.C.B. in June 1994, it plays a central role to the services we offer. Windsor House is also home to our charity shop, which is situated at the side of the house.
Every day of the week Windsor house is a hubbub of activity. With craft sessions, computer classes and social activities in our day centre, lunches served daily, a hairdressing salon and visiting chiropodist there’s always something going on to keep Jersey’s senior citizens active.
Additional services we offer include:
- Free transport to and from Windsor House is available. We also have volunteer drivers available, on occassions, to take you out and about for drivers to enjoy Jersey's beautiful countryside.
- A discount scheme for people of pensionable age only.
