AGE UK Bradford District officially opened its community hub in Keighley.

It is part of “Connections 21”, a campaign to raise awareness and funds for the charity so they can connect older people to the information, help and support, advice and activities they need.

Zahir Irani, Deputy-Vice-Chancellor of University of Bradford, attended the event.

He said: “As a university of and for Bradford we are committed to doing all we can to support our local community. That work includes our research with real-world impact in areas including health and patient care. The pandemic has been particularly difficult for older people, who have been cut off from social and support networks. Age UK’s campaign is a positive and practical way to improve the quality of life for older people.”
