Golden Age

Our popular Fenland Golden Age events provide residents with a range of useful information and practical advice. We work with a range of partners to provide energy advice, benefits information, sports advice and more for the over 60's.

Equality and Diversity

The Golden Age Team regularly visits the four Fenland @ your service shops or hubs to give advice and information. You can undertake a free benefits check with the 'Fenland Ferret' and as well as a free blood pressure check - so please come along and see us!

Next Golden Age Fair

Wednesday 27th September 2017, 11am - 2pm, at Christchurch Community Centre, Upwell Road, Christchurch, PE14 9LL.

What is the Fenland Ferret?

The Fenland Ferret isn't a furry creature with sharp teeth! It is a computer programme that ferrets out unclaimed benefits.

Annually, there are billions of pounds of unclaimed benefit. Since Golden age has been running, the Fenland Ferret has found approximately £800,000 amount of unclaimed benefit. In this year alone, £18,000 has been found. Think what a difference £20 p/w of unclaimed benefit could make to you - that's £1,000 a year. So why don't you come along and find out if you are entitled to more income. Download the pdf icon Fenland Financial Ferret [1Mb] form.
