Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The National Old People's Welfare Council, founded in 1940, brings together in one independent, non-political, undenominational body all voluntary and statutory organisations concerned with the problems of old people.
For the past sixteen years the Council has pioneered and promoted many services for the elderly, and to this end has directly and indirectly initiated Old People's Welfare Committees throughout the country. Funds are urgently needed to continue the Council's work.
