Age UK Sheffield Services

During the Corona virus outbreak we will be continuing to support Sheffield’s older people. However, we will be unable to provide face-to-face services from our city centre office. Please call us on (0114) 250 2850 and we will do whatever we can to help you.
We are continually assessing older people needs to work out how we can be most effective in supporting the older community who need help and support at this time.

With the government guidance changing on a regular basis we are doing all we can to plan the support that we can offer in the most efficient and effective way possible whilst taking into account the possibility of changes in guidance, and the safety of those we are supporting and of our staff and volunteers.
