Many people will be looking to see if the lunch clubs in Sheffield will start to operate again from September. It would be a huge relief for people that used to attend these, and also brings hope to new members who may be looking for a group to join to help them socialise again with people their own age. I know of a couple that are opening again in Sheffield. For information contact your local church to ask if they can confirm a start date or keep an eye on the Sheffield Council website.

Social care is under scrutiny again by the Government, particularly for the elderly, who often have to end up selling their homes to cover the cost of care in a home. Local councils also struggle to cover the cost of nursing home care for those who cannot afford to pay the cost themselves. With our senior citizens living longer, it will become an issue for many of us in the future, and definitely something to follow.
