Age Concern Thurrock is a friend of Age UK Essex

The Age Concern information helpdesks provide reliable information that can make a real difference to the quality of life of older people who want to remain as independent as possible but need to know what services and support are available.

Many families and carers of older people can experience difficulty in finding information to help them care for their relative or friend. Our helpdesks will be able to provide reliable up-to-date information on how to check benefit entitlement, where to find help in the home, residential care, special equipment etc. You will also be able to find details of local social clubs for older people and support services that could put you in touch with other people and help to beat loneliness.

This friendly and confidential service is available by calling into The Beehive in Grays, or by telephoning 01375 389872. Office hours are Monday - Friday 10am - 1pm.

As well as our office at The Beehive in Grays we also run a helpdesk at the South Ockendon Centre in Derry Avenue, which is open on Fridays from 10am - 12 noon. We have plans to open more helpdesks in the future.

Our volunteers are also happy to give a talk to your club or group about services available to older people. Please call us on 01375 389872 to make arrangements.
