Gateway to Care

back to older people home

Gateway to care is in Huddersfield Town Centre, near the bus station.

Housed in the former NTL building at 30 Market Street, near the bus station, they have services working together with the aim to help you, your family and friends get the health and social care information and support you need, all under one roof.

Step through the door and youŽll find advice for everyone who lives in Kirklees, including children and families, older people, unpaid carers and people with physical, sensory or learning disabilities. There is also support for homeless people and people with mental health problems.

Anyone who has difficulty walking around the town centre centre will be able to borrow a Shopmobilty scooter or wheelchair free.

Gateway to Care has been developed in consultation with Kirklees Council, SCOPE in Huddersfield, The Nerve Centre, Mencap, Age Concern, the Disability Rights Network, The Physical Disability and Sensory Impairment Partnership Board, Mental Health, the Learning Disabilities Partnership Board, the ChildrenŽs Partnership Board, the Shopmobility Steering Group and the NHS Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) for primary care and PALS for mental health.

Service users and carers views and suggestions have been included in developing Gateway to care.

Gateway to Care is funded by Kirklees Council and the Neighbourhood Renewal Fund and is staffed by trained specialist advisers who will explain the range of services available to you.

They also hold special surgery sessions, and offers a signpost service to many other organisations, such as housing and other health services.

Services on offer include a Kirklees Council Gateway to Care, Community Liaison, Carers Gateway, The Working In Partnership Team, housing and health, services for mental health and Primary Care and a range of voluntary organisations services, such as SCOPE in Huddersfield and Age Concern.
