Age Is No Barrier to Helping The Community

Do you know an older person who makes an amazing contribution to their community in Sheffield? Or a younger person, group or business that makes Sheffield a great place for older people to live in?

If so, why don’t you nominate them for the first ever annual Age Friendly Awards Sheffield Ceremony, hosted by Age UK Sheffield in October 2019.

The awards are designed to reward and celebrate all the achievements and contributions of amazing local people, businesses, voluntary groups, and communities who make Sheffield a great place to grow older and a fantastic city in which to live.

There’ll be lots of special guests attending the tea party-style event in October, including Tony Foulds whose actions in honour of American soldiers who died in the Second World War led to the flypast in Endcliffe Park earlier this year.

But firstly Age UK Sheffield need help from the public to find out who exactly is deserving of a nomination . There are 6 award categories in total: Age Friendly Business, Volunteer, Organisation, Group/Project, Champion and Community. So, if you know a person or a business that goes out of their way to support older people, a volunteer devoting their time to help someone who would otherwise be lonely, or an older person making a massive contribution to their community, why not share the love and nominate them to win an award. You’ll definitely make their day, even if they don’t win.

Nominations close on July 15th. You can nominate online by visiting Age UK Sheffield and clicking the link on the home page or contact Age UK Sheffield directly for a printed nomination form and a freepost return envelope, by calling (0114) 250 2850.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
