The first part of the organisation that is now Age Concern was founded on 9 September 1948.

Throughout the winter of 1948, journalist HA (Bud) Glasson and Sister Tingey of the District Nursing Service had investigated the plight of Dunedin’s older people. The resulting Otago Daily Times exposé stirred public indignation and led to calls for action.

Many of the problems faced by older people remain today: hardship, health care, social isolation, and discrimination.
