Age UK Sheffield provides high quality information, advice and services to people aged 50 and over in the city. We aim to empower older people to enable them to live happy and independent later lives. Following our merger with Sheffield 50+, and our successful application to deliver Sheffield City Council’s Age Hub, we are increasing our work in the areas of older people’s voice and representation. We have also been successful in bidding to deliver a social prescribing project in the Dore and Totley area of the city.

We have two part-time (0.4FTE) posts available, although we would be happy to receive applications from people who may wish to undertake both roles as one 0.8FTE role.
