AGE Concern Eastbourne is THE local, independent charity for older people in Eastbourne and surrounding areas.
Everything we do is about Eastbourne and the areas around it. Every penny raised locally is spent locally, to provide a
fantastic range of activities and services that make such a difference to the lives of so many people, and in simply being
there when help is needed. We have a drop-in centre, the William and Patricia Venton Centre, in Junction Road, Eastbourne.
What We Do We believe that age needs respect. It needs kindness. Sometimes it needs help. Age Concern Eastbourne aims to improve later life for everyone through our information and advice, services, campaigns, products, training and research.
Our Vision A world in which older people flourish is a world in which older people will be equal citizens with equal rights, have enough money for a secure and decent life, and have access as consumers to the products and services they need at a price they can afford, have access to the healthcare and social care they need, have the opportunity to live healthier longer lives and to enjoy a sense of well-being, live in homes and neighbourhoods that are safe and comfortable and which enable them to lead fulfilling lives, have opportunities to participate and contribute as volunteers, active citizens, good neighbours, family members, and workers, enjoy the benefits of longer life, wherever they are in the world.
