Information and Advice

Information & Advice Service in Barnsley

What does it do?

We offer information and advice on a wide range of topics affecting older people and their carers and have access to many different information resources.Our experienced staff and volunteers have a strong knowledge of local facilities and services that can be of benefit to the client group. If we are unable to provide you with the information or advice that you need, we aim to signpost you to another relevant organisation. 

Our advisers are trained to help you in many areas, including the following topics:

  • Social care - such as finding a care home or getting some help at home, and how it's funded.
  • Your income - including free benefits checks, help with applying for benefits and pension advice.
  • Your home - information on staying warm at home, home adaptations and how to prevent falls.
  • Legal issues - such as wills, Power of Attorney, and how to deal with an estate.
