No one should be left behind

As lockdown lifts, you can help us make sure vulnerable older people aren't forgotten. Donate today to help Age UK Calderdale and Kirklees open doors for our older generation.                                                                                                                                                                                              Important notice: Sadly, due to the Covid-19 crisis, the Age UK Calderdale and Kirklees premises on New Street, Huddersfield, has been closed to the public since the 24th March. Our staff and volunteers have successfully continued to deliver key services to older people in the area from our homes or our other bases and we plan to continue to deliver these services in this way until the late summer when we will review how we deliver services in the future.                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Age UK Calderdale and Kirklees have had to make the difficult decision not to re-open New Street. Unfortunately, the biggest effect of not re-opening New Street is that the Charity will no longer be operating a ShopMobility service in the town centre. We will continue to offer this from or Halifax office. We will also still be able to offer long term and holiday hire of scooters and if you require further information about this or any of our other services please call 01422 252040.                                                                                                                                                                                                  At Age UK Calderdale and Kirklees we rely heavily on funding and fundraising to keep our services running especially at times like these when they are in greater demand.  A donation of £10 could help answer 2 calls on our Advice Line. £25 could support our vital research projects that help shape services for older people. £50 could cover the cost of weekly friendship calls to a lonely older person.
