  1. Formerly called Batley Resource Centre, Jo Cox House provides facilities, access to information and services in Batley and its surrounding areas for children, young people, families and older people who might otherwise be isolated or lonely.

    Our befriending service aims to prevent people feeling isolated or lonely. Our volunteer befrienders make a huge impact on isolated elderly people by visiting them in their home for company and conversation, sometimes they play board games or just have a cup of tea and chat.

    Travel Companions are volunteers who offer their time to accompany clients to appointments, such as hospital visits, or even social groups. They may drive a client in their own car, go with them in a taxi, on the bus or walk. They offer company and friendship, not just a lift.

    Open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5.00pm.

    Our building is home to a number of like-minded organisations including Victim Support, Paddock Trust, Pain Management Solutions, Real Employment, IAPT, More in Common, Hopeful Families and Rachael Hardiman Acupuncture.

    Other groups may use the centre for meetings or events. We offer fully managed office space, reprographics, drop in and counselling space, meeting room facilities, community group activities, a place for caring groups to meet.

    Jo Cox House is part of Yorkshire Children's Centre - please see our website for more information.
