About Age UK Barnsley

Age UK Barnsley was set up in 1974 following an initiative from Age Concern England (now known as Age UK). We are concerned with promoting the well being, fulfillment and happiness of older people living in the Barnsley Metropolitan District.

Age UK Barnsley buildingThe charity provides a wide number of services from its own funds and works in partnership with Social Services and the NHS Barnsley in delivering further servcies to support the health and social care needs of Barnsley's older population.

Through the efforts and commitment of some 5 full-time and 25 part-time staff, together with a further 150+ regular volunteers, we are able to support and provide services to approximately 1000 older people on a regular basis and an even larger number on an occasional basis through services such as Advice & Information and Advocacy.

Like many charities Age UK Barnsley relies on donations to fund some of its work. There are lots of ways in which you can help to raise money.
