Our History

Age Concern has being serving the older people of Darlington since the mid 60s.

In 1989, we broke away from Age Concern in Durham to become Age Concern Darlington, an independent local charity, registered with the Charity Commission and with its own constitution and Board of Trustees.


Bradbury House was opened in May 1994, providing purpose built accommodation for activities including day care, domiciliary services, various clubs and forums, fit as a fiddle (offering health related activities) and a café.

In May 2005, a second outlet was added with the addition of our highly successful information and advice centre at 9 Clark's Yard. Trading was established at 11 Clark’s Yard to provide insurance and holiday opportunities for older people.

On 19th April 2010 Age Concern Darlington, whilst remaining a local independent charity, joined with other organisations from the merger between Age Concern and Help the Aged and became known as Age UK Darlington.

At midnight on 31 March 2011 Age UK Darlington became a company limited by guarantee.

In August 2011, insurance and information and advice relocated to 1 Beaumont Street in Darlington. We are located behind the back of Boyes.
