Age UK Wakefield District is a dynamic local charity. Over the past ten years we have developed a portfolio of services and activities aiming to help make later life an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for people over 50.
We currently have vacancies on our Board of Trustees and are looking to appoint individuals to the Board who are interested in working with others to improve the lives of older people in the District of Wakefield.
From November 2019 we are pleased to be offering a low-cost confidential counselling service by an experienced and qualified BACP Registered Counsellor.
We can provide One to One Counselling sessions which will be for 50 minutes (therapeutic hour).
Our trained counsellor will tailor the sessions to individual needs.
Age UK Wakefield District’s new Peace of Mind Service supports people aged 50 and over who are anxious about returning home after a stay in hospital.
One of our trained Support Workers will visit patients in their own home to find out what help they need and then continue to support you while they resettle at home, or while other help is put in place for them.
Volunteering is a fulfilling, satisfying and creative experience. You can help to meet the needs of older people by volunteering to support the services we provide.
