Yorkshire Water introduce Priority Service Register

Posted on

Calderdale Forum 50 Plus in association with Yorkshire Water want to inform you of a new project, Priority Service Plus which can benefit older people and the most vulnerable in Calderdale.

https://www.yorkshirewater.com/bill-account/priority-services-register/

Calderdale Forum 50 Plus has received grant funding from Yorkshire Water to help raise awareness of their priority services for the elderly and the vulnerable.

These priority services help customers who may be significantly impacted if they can’t access water for a short period of time, or people who would benefit from communication tailored to their specific needs.

For example customers who have sight problems, are hard of hearing, have home dialysis, use a wheelchair, have mobility concerns, or are concerned about unwanted callers, or would just like someone else to manage their account.  

It also means that in the event of planned work, or an emergency repair, they can make sure the most vulnerable people get the assistance they need as soon as possible.

The Priority Services Register is free to sign up and open to anyone over the age of 65 or with a specific disability or in vulnerable circumstances. Evidence of eligibility is not required on the sign-up form. Please think about friend and relatives who may benefit.

Customers can sign up online at https://www.yorkshirewater.com/bill-account/priority-services-register/ or by calling 0800 138 78 78 

The benefits and more details can be found on the Calderdale Forum 50 website at:

“In Touch” providing activities and social opportunities for older people

Posted on

A new online directory “In Touch” has been launched to help reconnect older people with their hobbies, social clubs and activity groups, before and after lockdown ends.

Visit In Touch here

Older people have been hard hit by the coronavirus pandemic, with lost opportunities for friendship and conversation, as their social clubs and activity groups closed.

Local not-for-profit organisation Calderdale Forum 50 Plus, are aiming to help people aged over 50 to restore their lost connections and find new social groups and clubs to join; while getting back out into their communities, doing the things they love best, making new friends and improving their mental health.

With funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, Calderdale Forum 50 Plus are building an online directory called “In Touch” on their popular website, for local over-50 groups and clubs to promote themselves to older people in Calderdale.  The directory will also feature groups that have been running successfully online over the last year.

Calderdale Forum 50 Plus’s Chairman Malcolm Kielty OBE said: “By creating “In Touch” we hope to encourage people who are cautious about leaving their homes and meeting people, to get involved again with their favourite groups, make new friends or try something new, but in a safe way.”

“The online directory on the Calderdale Forum 50 Plus website also aims to encourage volunteers who are unsure or lack the confidence to restart their groups, to give it a go.”

“If your group, club or organisation would like to be featured on “In Touch”, please get in touch with us at info@calderdaleforum50plus.com or via a form on our website.”

  • To visit “In Touch” look for the In Touch button on the Calderdale Forum 50 Plus website – com
  • To submit your group’s details to the directory visit:

The directory is now live on our website.  You can see it at the link below.
