Newsletter 1 2010/11
From 19th of April 2010 Age Concern will complete a merger with Help
The Aged and become known nationally as Age UK.
The introduction of the new Age UK name and logo is a major milestone
in the journey to create a single new organisation which will improve the
lives of people in later life, both in the UK and abroad. This journey has
been driven by the belief that alongside climate change, population
ageing is the greatest global transition to face society this century and
that change is needed to meet this challenge.
Please be reassured that the level and standard of support and services
Age Concern Herefordshire & Worcestershire has provided on a local
level will continue. In line with these changes Age Concern
Herefordshire & Worcestershire plans to change its name and brand
image over the coming few months and will become Age UK
Herefordshire & Worcestershire.
Watch out for the national advertising campaign!
We have been chosen, along with the University of Worcester, to deliver
Basic Awareness and Advanced Dementia Care training on behalf of
Worcestershire County Council.
