Description

Age Concern is a community based not-for-profit organisation dedicated to enhancing quality of life for older people.  Each council offers a variety of services and information to help meet the needs of older people, families and communities in their area.

Age Concern Hamilton is your first port of call when you and your family/whānau need: information, advice, referral or support services.

We know what the local community can offer and we can help you make the links.  Our range of activities can help you meet people and stay connected.

We can tell you what’s happening in the community centre; how to get home support; where your nearest Tai Chi class is; how to get discounted taxi vouchers.
