. . . your local charity helping to support the elderly in their own homes

Age Concern Banstead is an independent charity, based in the North of Surrey. We aim to promote the well being of our elderly people, and you will find plenty of information about our services on this site.

Although our base is in the Day Centre, Banstead we cover a wide area between Banstead in the north and the M25. If you are part of the Reigate and Banstead Council area and live north of the M25 then we will be very pleased to hear from you. For details of neighbouring Age Concern organisations please visit our links page.

Our services are run by a combination of paid and volunteer staff with management by an active board of trustees, many of whom also volunteer in other roles.

Age Concern Banstead has been a part of the lives of many people in this area for over 50 years.

As far as we can ascertain the charity started life in late 1950's and was called the "Banstead Council of Social Service and Old Peoples' Welfare Council".

The management of our charity is provided by a board of trustees. Trustees are nominated at the Annual General Meeting and elected for a three year term by paid up members.

The board meets at least 6 times each year and decides on strategy and direction. The chairperson is elected by the members and all other appointments are made by the trustees themselves. The trustees are able to ask other people with specific skills to join them to serve as trustees if necessary.

We are grateful to Reigate and Banstead Council for our core funding of £10,000 plus about £5,000 of in kind benefits - this is about 20% of our income. 

This means that we have to generate significant sums from other sources: donations, fundraising and modest charges for some of our services

This is a significant challenge but one that we have risen to and we are relying on fundraising and donations to make a significant contribution.
Please visit our donations page for ways that you can help us. You can also visit the Events section of this website to find details of our fundraising activities.
