About us

HelpAge International is a global non-profit organisation that works to improve the lives of older people around the world. We work through the HelpAge global network, an alliance of organisations committed to the wellbeing, dignity and voice of older people

The organisation was founded in 1983, and the global network has more than 170 global members in more than 90 countries.

Our mission is to promote the rights and well-being of older people, and to help them live dignified and fulfilling lives. Through our work we address the challenges faced by older people, such as poverty, social isolation, and discrimination. We also advocate for policies and programmes that support the rights of older people, and provide support to local organisations and communities working with older people.
