Our aim is to support older people to live independently in their own home, enabling them to live later life well.  We do this in a variety of ways through our community hubs. 

The types of service and support we offer puts members in control of their own support plan and members can choose the types of activities or services they would like, providing them with flexibility and variety.

We do this by offering different types of service that suit different wants and needs that members can access, picking and choosing from the whole range.

We can provide support with arranging transport to these areas.

What services do we offer?

Building based supported activities

Day time activities are delivered in venues across the community like church halls or community centres. Sessions vary with most including refreshments, lunch and delivered activities such as gentle exercise, games and quizzes. There is support with transport provision for these activities.

User & volunteer led social and interest groups

These groups have been created for members who have a particular interest, such as painting, card craft, dance or exercise. The sessions are mainly led and delivered by volunteers taking place at different venues throughout the week. Members and volunteers can request support to set up new activities where and when needed offering members additional choices.

Outreach community based activities

These activities include planned and coordinated group activities such as outings, community events and supported holidays, members can pick from a calendar of regular events.

The outreach activities also include a wide range of coordinated micro-clubs, friendship groups and partnership matches where Community Programme Coordinators match members with shared interests together to share activities in the community or in each other’s’ homes.

In addition to social and interest activities, our Community Programme Coordinators will also provide one to one support through an assessment and review process.

Members are encouraged to give honest feedback so any services and support needs not currently provided by the scheme can be identified and members can be signposted to additional support elsewhere.

Community Programme Coordinators may also provide one to one support on a short term/occasional basis for example in a crisis or emergency.

Dementia activities

Our `Dementia Adventure’ project is designed to provide nature based activities both indoors and outdoors to members living with dementia and their carers.

The project is delivered by a Community Programme Coordinator who has received specialist training to support people living with dementia to take part in the activities.

From working directly with the groups and running your own sessions, to representing the scheme at local events are many aspects of the organisation you can choose to get involved with!
