The Age Hub exists to ensure people from all age groups are consulted on local issues in Sheffield, and have the opportunity for their voice to be heard.
Our current priorities are:
- Community safety

Age Hub Organising Group
- Age Hub Co-Chair: Luke Bassett
I am a former chair of Sheffield Youth Cabinet and have been an elected member for almost 4 years. As a part of Sheffield Youth Cabinet I have facilitated meetings frequently and I believe my experience would make me an ideal candidate for this role. I enjoy working with others and would hope to have a great working relationship with my fellow Co-Chair. Thank you for reading this statement and I hope you consider voting for me!
- Age Hub Representative – young people: Jude Daniel Smith
I am 13 and I am a member of the Sheffield Youth Cabinet (part of Sheffield Futures). I would like to run for the role of Age Hub Representative - young people. Personally, I believe that my young age and fresh outlook on the world, coupled with my debating/social action experience through the UK Youth Parliament will bring a host of benefits to the EHN Age Hub. My past experiences include: debating in Parliament for the crucial topic of votes at sixteen; going to Youth Voice Consultations all over Yorkshire and Humber; planning events showcasing Youth Action and inspiring young people; taking the role of summarising notions at the 2018 Great Sheffield Youth Debate, meeting with MP's such as Paul Blomfield to raise the issue of young people and Brexit, presenting information to schools about Make Your Mark – Britain’s largest youth consultation; running a stall at International Youth Day and taking part in funding bids of the Integrated Societies Grant to get money for events to bring young people around Sheffield together.
I promise I would bring so much compassion and dedication to the Age Hub Organising Group and I hope you consider my application.
- Age Hub Representative – older people/Co-Chair: Alan Carter
I identify myself as an older person, a member of the Sheffield Equality Hub Network and a lifelong Sheffield resident.
I have extensive professional qualifications and an appropriate background in local government administration at senior and managerial level in both South and West Yorkshire and as a Company Secretary in the field of social enterprise, principally in the Yorkshire and Humberside Region.
Since retirement, I have been actively involved in promoting the interests of older people in many and varied aspects of the Voluntary, Community and Faith Sector in Sheffield, being amongst other things Chair of the Sheffield Third Sector Assembly, Vice Chair of the Sheffield LINk, a long term VCF representative on the Sheffield Safer and Sustainable Communities Partnership Board and, since 2013, an Independent (co-opted) Member of the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Panel. I am a Core Partner of the Age Better in Sheffield project, currently delivering a major programme of Big Lottery-funded initiatives to the City’s over 50s and a member of the Sheffield 50 plus Group.
I would bring to the role a high level of personal commitment, knowledge and expertise and therefore seek your support to enable me to further serve the Sheffield community in this capacity.
