About Us

Our full registered name is Rural Age Concern Darent Valley.  We are an independent charity providing services for elderly and disabled people in the Southern parishes of Dartford Borough Council and Northern Parishes of Sevenoaks District Council. We are not part of AgeUK.

We work closely with Age Concern and AgeUK groups based in Kent and have contact as and when required with other Age Concern and AgeUK groups based elsewhere in the UK.

Please note that our new website
www.racdv.org.uk is under construction and that this website will soon be replaced.


We work with local / regional / national statutory and voluntary agencies and represent the interests of the elderly and disabled on various committees and forums.

The charity was formed in 1951 as the Dartford Rural District Old Peoples Welfare Committee. The name Age Concern Dartford Rural was adopted in March 1973, with the current name adopted in June 1996.
