Age Concern Eastbourne - Services, Volunteers and Community Support

It was founded in 1948 and for most of its life it was a small organisation operating from an office in Eastbourne and providing a limited range of services. In 1999, as a result of a large donation from a local resident (Mrs Patricia Venton), it opened the William and Patricia Venton Centre in Eastbourne town centre and since then it has grown considerably.  In 2011 we decided to become independent when Age Concern and Help the Aged merged to form Age UK.


Age Concern Eastbourne runs a wide range of services:

At the William & Patricia Venton Centre: This is the main base and HQ of the Charity. In the Centre is a Café; hairdresser;  massage; chiropody/nail cutting; reflexology; aromatherapy; handicrafts; French conversation classes; poetry circle; extend exercise; belly dancing;  outings; day club; dementia day club; cyber café; lesbian and gay older persons group; information and help desk.

In the Community: We operate a Welfare Rights Information Service; Eastbourne Shed, Langney Shed, Hampden Park Shed and have four charity shops.


Age Concern Eastbourne has just under 200 volunteers who regularly give their time and skills to the services provided by Age Concern Eastbourne. Volunteers work in three main areas of work – at the Venton Centre, in the community or in one of our charity shops. We are always pleased to welcome new volunteers.
