Age UK combines Age Concern and Help the Aged, and is one of the most powerful and influential organizations in the United Kingdom. The Age UK family includes Age Scotland, Age Cymru and Age NI. Age UK works to improve the lives of people in later life. It celebrates ageing and believes it presents unprecedented opportunities and challenges at home and abroad. It challenges
ageist prejudice in society.
The association of BAFUNCS with Age Concern began in 1982, the year of the World Assembly on Ageing convened by the United Nations in Vienna. BAFUNCS has been represented at many major meetings in the UK since 2006 by Dr Ziaul Islam. In 2019, Colin Davis took over from Dr Zia as Age UK liaison officer and focal point.
