Information and Advice

At Age UK Darlington, we aim to tackle issues that affect older people so you can enjoy a better quality of life and make sure that you have the right information to make informed decisions about the things that are important to you.


The Age UK Darlington Information and Advice Service

Our team of dedicated staff and volunteers provide a free, independent and confidential service to people aged 50 and over, and to their family, carers and friends.

We can provide information and advice on most subjects. If we are unable to deal with your enquiry, we will refer you to someone who can.

We can help with:

  • Benefits
  • Housing
  • Health
  • Residential and daycare provision
  • Direct Payments and help at home
  • Affordable warmth
  • Consumer and legal issues
  • Social and personal problems
  • Access to local services
  • Advice is available at our office in Beaumont Street by appointment Monday to Friday.

If you can't make it to our wheelchair accessible office, please call us. We are happy to carry out home visits where required.

Age UK publications – be in the know!

Growing older doesn't come with a manual but we have a range of information guides and factsheets to help you find out about things like benefits, health and well-being, housing, care issues, saving energy and work and learning.

Our information is impartial, easy to digest and also free of charge.

You can download the guides from the Age UK website or call into our office on Beaumont Street where you can browse the bookshelf.
