- Keysafe fitting
- Light housework
- Shopping and prescription delivery
- Welfare calls
- Mobility aid recommendations.
Age UK Calderdale & Kirklees will not be able to accept referrals from people who are displaying symptoms of COVID-19; who have been in contact with someone in the last 14 days who has the symptoms of covid-19; or who use aerosol generating equipment.
