Age Concern Hampshire’s Information and Advice service offers independent, impartial and confidential support to people over 50, their friends, family and carers, and to professionals working with older people. The service is accredited by Advice Quality Standard assessors and has been highly praised for the dedication and quality of its advisors.

Our Freephone Information and Advice Line (0800 328 7154) is staffed by highly trained volunteer advisors who can help with enquiries on everything from residential care and heating bills to gardening, benefits, local social clubs and activities. It is open from Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm.

We also have an Information and Advice Service run from our Andover Office open Monday to Friday 9.30 am to 12.30 pm (01264 354425)

Email enquiries for information and advice can be sent to info@ageconcernhampshire.org.uk. Useful factsheets and leaflets are also available on a wide range of topics.
