Age UK North, South & West Dorset is an independent local charity that exists to enable older people across rural Dorset to maintain physical and mental wellbeing in later life.

We achieve this by providing direct services to enable older people to remain independent and enjoying life, organising activities to create opportunities for an enriched social life, and by working with older people to campaign and have their voices heard.
