How we can help

We're a local charity working in the community to support older people, their families and carers. We want everyone to be able to love later life.

If you shop Amazon Prime Day deals on 12 & 13 July, Amazon will double donations: Simply shop with AmazonSmile ON in the Amazon Shopping app or at smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/1102020-0, and AmazonSmile donates to Age UK Calderdale & Kirklees.

Can you help us raise money for our new electric minibus?

For many older people in the community, our services may be the only meaningful activity or interaction that they have, and transport is an essential piece that helps to make this possible.
