5th February 2019 


We would like to wish YOU, our amazing supporters, a very happy 2019. 

In 2018, thanks to your support we answered 11,200 calls to our Advice & Advocacy Service, had over 95,000 engagements with older people through our Care Services, and raised thousands through your donations and fundraising activities.

We are very excited for 2019 and hope that with your continued support, we'll be able to be there for even more older people, helping them to stay independent, connected and to love later life. 

Many thanks,
Team Age NI 

Belfast City Marathon 

Run for Age NI and make a difference to older people across Northern Ireland.

Why not sign up for this year’s Belfast City Marathon for a chance to get fit, challenge yourself and also raise money to help support local older people who have no one else to turn to.

Whether you're a seasoned runner or lacing up your trainers for the first time, there are lots of ways you can get involved, including the full marathon, relay or 8 mile walk.

Every step you take and every penny you raise will go directly towards helping us be there for older people when they need us most.

"I've got my independence back"

Last year, Age NI ran a competition in association with our bathroom adaptation partner, Sync Living to give one lucky person the chance to win an accessible bathroom.

We were thrilled that Jacinta McBrearty, from Ballycastle was the lucky recipient and are delighted her new bathroom is making a huge difference to her life. She said:

"When I realised it was real, I was absolutely delighted. It couldn’t have come at a better time, as I was waiting to go into hospital for hip replacement surgery. Thanks to Age NI and Sync Living I realise how adaptations are important to daily living when mobility is restricted by illness and age. They are wonderful organisations and I would recommend them to anyone who needs a bit of support in later life.”

Muriel and Anne's Stories

Thanks to your support, we're able to be there for thousands of older people who are lonely and want to remain connected to their communities as they grow older.

Muriel and Anne attend our Anna House day centre in Dunmurry and describe it as a "lifeline" for someone like them who lives on their own.

Anne said; "It's so nice to come to Anna House because you get to feel like you're useful again, even if it's just sitting reading a newspaper, you're surrounded by other people and there's always lots going on."
