Description

Age UK Barnsley provides an Information and Advice service at the One Stop Shop on Eldon Street in Barnsley town centre.

Our Information and Advice service is delivered by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers who have a wealth of experience in issues affecting older people and their carers.

We will provide you with the relevant information for your situation, provide you with options and advice, support you in making telephone calls, form filling and signpost you to other relevant organisations.

We can help with:

  • Local facilities and services
  • Activities
  • Health and social care
  • Finances
  • Benefits
  • Housing options

Please call in or ring 01226 776825, our receptionist will take some basic details from you and one of our advisers will phone you back to discuss your enquiry.

Office appointments and home  visits (for those who are housebound) can be arranged after speaking with an adviser.

We have a range of free booklets covering relevant issues for older people and their carers.  You can help yourself to these from the display in our charity shop.
