Age UK Wakefield District offers lots of services for older people and their carers.

We pride ourselves on the quality of all that we do, making sure that standards of professional delivery are maintained at all times by both staff and volunteers.

We believe that by listening to the needs of people who use our services and by working together as a team, we are able to deliver services that respond directly to local need.

We are always interested to hear if you can think of ways for us to improve the delivery of our services or if you can see ways for us to develop what we do.

Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

During these difficult times, we have adapted our services to meet the new challenges faced by individuals due to coronavirus. Some services remain unaffected and our staff will continue to deliver these services safely.  Some services have been adapted to continue remotely, mainly by phone.  All our services operate to COVID-secure standards. If you need further information please contact our Single Point of Contact on 01977 552114
