Book Exchange at Wrose (Shipley & Bingley Hub)
The Book Exchange is a pilot scheme enabling people to request Bradford Libraries books via Age UK Bradford District. These can be collected from and then returned to the Age UK Bradford District Community Hub at Wrose.
This free service is a new way for anyone who cannot easily access other Bradford Libraries services, to borrow books and enjoy choosing and chatting about reading with local volunteers at the Wrose Age UK Bradford District Community Hub.

Campaigning & Support
Ageing Without Children (AWOC)
AWOC is a campaigning & support group which aims to highlight the issues that affect those that are ageing without children and raise awareness amongst statutory and voluntary services in order to improve services. The group normally meets once a month for a meeting and also has regular socials (due to coronavirus the group is currently using ZOOM)
The third Wednesday of every month; 4 – 6pm via Zoom
(prior to coronavirus we were meeting in person at the Equality Together premises)
The group is open to all those ageing without children; this includes:
- Those without children
- Those whose children live far away
- Those who are estranged from their children
We also welcome organisations that wish to work positively with those ageing without children.
Do you feel that there is a gap or something missing in Bradford District?
We can support individuals or small community groups to establish activities that are right for them in their own communities.
If you require support setting up or facilitating a group, we can help! Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01274 391190.
