For many years Age UK Calderdale & Kirklees have been providing a “drop-in” service in Halifax for people over 50 to obtain benefits advice etc.
Due to the ever-increasing demand for assistance and limited resources, from January 2016 Age UK Calderdale & Kirklees will operate on an appointments system. Advisors will be available to see people at the Woolshops premises, between 10 am and 1 pm Monday to Thursday, but Age UK Calderdale & Kirklees ask that clients book appointments in advance.
Their reception staff on 01422 399830 will take initial information, by phone, face-to-face, or by e mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, and an Advisor will telephone the client to discuss the assistance they need. It may be that some clients’ requirements can be fulfilled by a telephone conversation, otherwise an appointment will be made for them to come in. Age UK Calderdale & Kirklees’ advisors will continue to make home visits, by exception, where it is impossible for a client to visit our offices.
