Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

Age Concern Tyneside South (ACTS) is an independent, local charity working in the Borough of South Tyneside supporting people over the age of 50.  It is the largest voluntary sector organisation working with older people in the borough. 

ACTS was established in 2016 following the transfer of services and staff from Age UK South Tyneside.  Although ACTS is a new charity, staff brought with them more than 30 years experience of delivering services to older people in South Tyneside.
