Age Concern offers Equity Release Advice
Age Concern, which bills itself as '
the UK's largest charity working with and for older people' publishes a comprehensive guide to Equity Release. See the link below.

But right here at LearnMoney we publish what we believe to be the best Equity Release guide on the market. See right below here for details.

The Times is not too keen on Age Concern
This is something to bear in mind about Age Concern. An April 2010 article appearing in The Times wasn't too impressed with the charity. From the article -

The charity has been accused of putting its supporters’ trust in jeopardy. Age UK has come under fire from Times Money readers for charging elderly people high fees for legal work or providing poor service to customers who signed up to its energy tariff. It also encourages pensioners using its will service to hand over money to the charity in legacies.

Experts say that the charity risks putting its good name in danger in its pursuit of money. In an unusual move for a UK charity, it has signed commercial deals with outside suppliers to provide products and services to pensioners.

The article doesn't mention Equity Release directly and I don't know if the charity has any commercial deals with equity release providers. Still, it's something to bear in mind and another good example of why proper and detailed research into what you're buying and who you're buying from is so important.
