How can you help?

Easy Donate

Age UK Wakefield District is a registered charity promoting the wellbeing of older people throughout the Wakefield district. We are here to make later life a fulfilling and more enjoyable experience for local people. 

Your contribution can help us provide a sustainable service that transforms lives.

Do you know that:

  • £2.00 a month supports training for a telephone befriender call to a lonely older person and be that one voice a week they speak to
  • £5.00 a month brings friendship, the time for a chat, and care in a safe, secure environment to an isolated older person
  • £10.00 a month ensures expert support is on hand for a person when life changes unexpectedly, no one should have no one to turn to
