  1. The Huddersfield Deanery Project (HDP), set up in 1994, helps to tackle isolation and loneliness among older people. The team, including volunteers, shares information with older people, offers them advice and support, and puts them in touch with local partners. Older people are welcome to call in to our community groups or to telephone us, and we can even make home assessment visits, enabling us to identify the right activity for each person.

    A range of groups and activities enable older people to maintain or improve their fitness (our exercise programme is supported by Age UK), meet new people, develop new skills and lead more fulfilling lives. Older people living with dementia are most welcome to attend with their carer and join in the fun.
