Age UK Bradford District is a registered charity which exists to help older people in the Bradford District, through our core services;
Information and Advice: Ensuring that people in later life have the knowledge they need of their rights, entitlements and responsibilities and are aware of the services and support available to them. This is often support with benefits checks and welfare rights support. We deliver this from our Kirkgate office and at outreach / home visits by appointment. We also offer a ‘Free Will’ service in partnership with McClures Solicitors.
Wellbeing and Engagement: Supporting people to live independent and fulfilling lives, enabling them to remain active and involved in their communities, combating and preventing social isolation and loneliness.
Some of the activities we currently offer include
o I.T Lessons via the Worth Connecting Project The Aged Veterans Project
o Help at Home services, including the Trusted Trader Database on our website
o Day services in Keighley, Denholme & Mary Seacole Court
o Person centred support across the district, facilitated by our Wellbeing Officers
Integrated Care: Bringing together voluntary, health and care organisations to help older people who are living with long-term conditions, working to co-design and co-produce an innovative combination of medical and non-medical support.
