Penistone Social Inclusion Project - For Older People



Who we are

This service is for older people aged 50 and over who live in the Penistone area and are at risk of becoming socially isolated. This service provides practical and social support to enable people to get out and about and take part in community activities or have someone visit them at home.

Would you like to get out and about and do more? If so, this service may be for you!

We can help you find out what is on in your area so you can join new groups and activities.  We can also introduce you to like-minded people in your community.

We understand that it can be difficult to take the first step when trying something new.  We have volunteers who will support you along the way until you become more confident.

If you struggle to get out as much as you would like, we are happy to have a chat with you to discuss ways in which we can help.

We have an afternoon outings club, where small groups meet up for a visit to a local attraction, go for a walk and get some fresh air or have a cuppa and a catch up at a local cafe or pub.

So what are you waiting for ? If you like the idea of becoming more active and meeting new people, get in touch and our Social Inclusion Officers will give you more details.

Community Car Scheme

This service also provides a Community Car Service alongside our partners from Dial a Ride. This is especially important in this rural part of Barnsley where public transport is not always accessible especially when a person is frail or has a disability. This service can be used to go to appointments, go shopping or attend a social group but does need to be booked in advance. There is a small fee to cover fuel expenses. Please give us a ring on 01226 776820 to find out more.
