Information pamphlet for older folk in Crookes

Have your say

A new booklet has been launched to help prevent elderly residents in the Sheffield suburb of Crookes becoming isolated.

Community group Crookes Forum joined forces with Oliver Coppard, Labour parliamentary candidate for Sheffield Hallam, to publish the pamphlet, which includes details of local community groups, health services, organisations and events.

The information has been tailored for the elderly population of about 2,500 people.

The booklet is available from shops, pharmacies and churches across Crookes.

Mr Coppard said: “There is help and support out there, and a sense of community spirit, but it’s not always easy to find details of what’s going on.

“All too often information is shared online, which can limit some people’s ability to find it.”
