Age Concern Hampshire - BASINGSTOKE office is part of the County Organisation, Age Concern Hampshire.
Before merging with ACH in January 2005, we were an autonomous organisation known as Age Concern Basingstoke & Deane, which was set-up in 1962 and initially known as Old Peoples Welfare (Registered Charity Number: 214086).
On merging, the Basingstoke assets were transferred to ACH and ring-fenced for the provision of services in Basingstoke. It was further agreed to maintain the Basingstoke identity, staff, volunteers and office location in order to continue with the services in the local area. The Basingstoke office is run as an entirely separate cost-centre and therefore the level of services provided in Basingstoke are very much dependant on funds secured through Service Level Agreements and fundraising activities.
Services have strengthened and improved over recent years. As long as sufficient funds are raised locally, we hope to continue extending the services so as to meet local demand, which continues to rise.
