Urmston Community Hub

Main organisation: Age UK Trafford
What is Age UK Trafford?

Age UK Trafford has supported the people of Trafford since 1975, firstly as The Older Peoples Welfare Committee, then as Age Concern Trafford and more recently as Age UK Trafford.  It is an independent local charity that uses its resources only in the Brough of Trafford.  It provides its services across the whole Borough.

Its present services include dementia advice service, mild cognitive impairment support, falls prevention information and classes, general information, and advice for over 50’s, social prescribing, dementia specialist day care, benefits checks and form completion, social activities, a “get connected” project to help older people get online, a home library service, a traders list, a regular free legal surgery onsite and various volunteering opportunities. Within the next two months it will also have a dedicated mental health support resource for over 50’s.

Age UK Trafford is also the West Lead for the VCFSE Collective, which is bringing the voice of the voluntary sector and local people together across Trafford.

Trafford Carers Centre is also on site every Thursday.

What does the Urmston Community Hub do?

From the beginning of the Covid 19 pandemic Age UK Trafford continued to provide all its key services and to act as a community hub for the distribution of food, medication, advice, information and support to the most vulnerable in the community.

As the pandemic moves slowly towards its endemic stage we continue to support our local Food Bank with the distribution of food boxes, to provide information and advice, to carry out benefit checks, to provide information on local activities, and to distribute a household support fund for essential items including fuel top ups.
