What We Do - Older People's Service

The Huddersfield Deanery Project for Older People (HDP) was set up in 1994 to provide a range of services for older people in the Ashbrow Ward of Kirklees.

Within its objectives HDP seeks to

  • promote the practical social and spiritual wellbeing of older people
  • address specific practical, social and spiritual concerns of older people especially those arising from loneliness and isolation by offering direct or indirect help.
  • support older people to remain independent and live at home through all initiatives/activities.

The service is staffed by one part time manager with admin support.

What we offer:

  • 2 Gentle armchair exercise classes and 2 keep fit classe
  • Prayer group which meets fortnightly and provides a lovely time of reflection and sharing and is open to all
  • ‘Thursday Friends', a lunch club with activities, gentle exercise, raffle and bingo
  • ‘Friday Friends', a lunch club including fortnightly gentle exercise, a raffle, bingo, credit union point, book club and the sale of healthy fruit and vegetable bag
  • Craft group
  • Walking group
  • Bingo Club
  • Volunteering opportunities at all groups

Through our locally based office in Bradley we share information, offer advice and support or can signpost to another organisation.

Enquiries are always welcome - in person or on the phone. Home assessment visits are carried out to assess individual needs and to identify what activity might best suit the older person concerned.
