HelpAge International has been advocating for the rights and voice of older people for 40 years. Dive into our history, discover our milestones, and explore our innovative solutions to complex problems.
In November 1983, five organisations from around the world came together to set up HelpAge International. Their founding vision was to create a global network of grassroots organisations that would champion the rights and wellbeing of older people worldwide.
In the last 40 years HelpAge has worked with the growing global network to increase awareness of older people and the discrimination they might face, their rights, the support they might need and the contribution they can make to society.
Join us in reflecting on the significant achievements in our work over the past four decades.
