By buying products or services from Age Concern Birmingham (affiliated to advant~age), you will be helping us to raise income that will allow us to continue to provide services designed to improve the quality of life for local older people.
Age Concern Birmingham is a local charity, committed to the people and communities surrounding Birmingham. We started delivering services over 25 years ago and since then, with the help and support of local people we have grown, whilst always retaining our focus on excelling in meeting the needs of older people and others in need.
We are particularly adept in the provision of direct services for older adults but recognise the benefits of a holistic approach. In supporting those who care for older adults and those who may experience hardship in later life, we can make a positive contribution to the lives of current and future older adults.
Age Concern Birmingham is rooted in the ethos of being a local charity for local people. We will always strive to retain our individuality and we are not aligned to, or any part of, a large organisation. This allows us to be responsive, flexible and close to the ground.
As a trusted name we receive many different forms of requests for assistance and we always endeavour to help. We still visit people in their own homes because this is what matters if you are alone, housebound, isolated or distressed. Our staff spend many hours of their time in listening to the people we serve and taking action to make their lives better. We are constantly striving to become more proactive in our work and more responsive in alleviating problems when they arise.
Our staff and volunteers are passionate, committed and dedicated. They go home knowing they have made a positive impact on the people we work with and come back the next day ready and determined to go again.
To survive and flourish we will continue to grow but wherever we work and whatever we do, it will be for the benefit of the local community. The income we raise will be re-invested towards making life better for older adults.
This is what sets us apart, this is what makes us different and this is what we can achieve together.

Now is the time your leaves begin to fall and bare branches begin to appear, the colourful flowerbeds are no longer so colourful. Why not have your hedges trimmed to keep them compact and bushy or lay some new plants from the previous year’s cuttings.
Whatever the plan or whatever you need to help you with your garden, including clearances or tree cutting, we can help!
