The saying goes that 'giant oak trees from tiny acorns grow', and that's certainly the case with Agewell. In 1998, the organisation started life as the vision of a small group of older Sandwell residents. Now, the Agewell oak tree is over 10 years old, the roots are well established and its branches reach out to influence many areas affecting older people's quality of life - equality, housing, health, safety, transport and many more.
Agewell is now an integral part of the work of Sandwell Primary Care Trust. It is the strategic voice for older people in the borough and is a well-respected organisation which is making a real and lasting impact on the lives of local people.
