A little bit about Age Support Almanzora

Age Support Almanzora, provide emotional and practical support for older people Our Mission

Our mission is to promote the well-being of all older people and to help make later life a fulfilling and enjoyable experience.


Values and principles underpin what we do, why we do it, and guide how we work to achieve our mission. Our underlying principles are:

  • Ageism is unacceptable: we are against all forms of unfair discrimination, and challenge unfair treatment on grounds of age
  • All people have the right to make decisions about their lives: we help older people to discover and exercise these rights
  • People less able to help themselves should be offered support: we seek to support older people to live their lives with dignity
  • Diversity is valued in all that we do: we recognise the diversity of older people and their different needs, choices, cultures and values


Our work is also guided by a set of values:

  • Enabling: we enable older people to live independently and exercise choice
  • Influential: we draw strength from the voices of older people, and ensure that those voices are heard
  • Dynamic: we are innovative and driven by results and constantly deliver for older people.
  • Caring: we are passionate about what we do and care about each individual.
  • Expert: we are authoritative, trusted and quality-orientated.
