Age Concern Stone & District is a small independent charity which was set up in 1991 and since then we have enriched the lives of older people in the Stone area by providing information and a range of services through a passionate team of committed volunteers with strong local knowledge.
We have a large ground floor office in the Council Building in Station Road Stone and every year we deal with over 1,000 calls or visits from local older people or their families.
We offer information, advice and assistance on matters relevant to older people including benefit advice, assistance with form-filling, sorting out problems with utilities and helping people to access the services they need.
Our Lunch Clubs and Coffee Mornings provide a happy, friendly environment for people to spend time with their peers.
We also have a Befriending Service whereby people are visited in their own homes by one of our caring volunteers.
We have recently set up a transport service to convey patients to hospitals in our area.
