Age UK Calderdale and Kirklees is a local charity, affiliated to the national charity Age UK, which came about through the merger of Age Concern and Help the Aged. We are responsible for choosing and funding all of the services we provide locally.

We help older people by providing practical, reliable services, letting you live the independent life you want and giving your family the peace of mind, knowing that you are being well looked after.

Our priorities

• To put older people at the centre of everything we do
• To provide accessible, effective and reliable services and to strive to continuously improve these for our customers
• To grow our range of services and to work with other organisations to expand opportunities to help more older people enjoy later life

Our Team

Our Chief Executive is Lisa Butland and we employ approximately 140 staff, most on a part-time basis. We have a Board of Trustees chaired by Sue Ellis, who oversee all the work that we do and a further 100+ volunteers who all generously give their time to make a positive difference to the lives of local older people.   

Our locations

Our headquarters are located in Halifax in the Woolshops. In Huddersfield we have a branch in the town centre on New Street as well as a dedicated day centre at Sundale House. We also provide day services at other centres in Calderdale and Kirklees.
