AnnotationUntil 1971 known as the National Old People's Welfare Council (NOPWC). In 1989 the NOPWC was changed to the National Council on Ageing, as a constitutional title for Age Concern. Age Concern is now a federation of Age Concern England, Age Concern Scotland, Age Concern Northern Ireland and Age Concern Cymru. Age Concern is now the leading movement in the UK working with and for older people. Age Concerns are some 400 independent charities that work together in agreed ways, sharing the name and a commitment to making later life fulfilling and enjoyable. Age Concern England campaigns nationally on issues that matter to older people and supports other Age Concerns in their provision of services that promote independence and emotional well-being. There are several trading subsidiaries within Age Concern, notably marketed by Age Concern Enterprises Limited. In 2004, Age Concern Research Service begun, which will undertake and sell research from longitudinal studies. Gordon Lishman OBE is the current Director General. Age Concern England and Help the Aged merged in 2009 and will be known as Age UK from April 2010. (KJ).
