AgeUK Barnsley Wombwell Shop

AgeUK Barnsley are a charity who are concerned with promoting the well-being, fulfilment and happiness of older people living in the Barnsley area. Our main Age UK Barnsley Centre is already a member of the DAA so we consider it important that we make our two charity shops and our one stop shop members too. A representative from our organisation attends the Barnsley DDA meetings and the Barnsley Multi agency forum these will help us establish what actions are important for local people. Then we can consider what we as an organisation can do towards them.
