Why do we need you?
Age NI is the leading charity for older people in Northern Ireland. Our vision is a world where
everyone can love later life. Our mission is to help people enjoy a better later life. Our
society is ageing. More than 350,000 older people live in Northern Ireland, and there are
more people over the age of 50 than under the age of 19. In the next twenty years, the
number of people over 50 will increase by more than 30%. We believe that people should be
supported to love later life.
