Supportive Communities Training Session 2: Communication & Safeguarding

‘Supportive Communities’ is a programme of work that supports older people to stay healthy and independent for longer.  It's about:

Supporting people to stay connected with their local community.

Helping people to find different solutions, so they can stay in their own homes for longer. This could be a new piece of daily living equipment or technology that supports independence.

Encouraging people to look after their own health and wellbeing, so they can lead a healthy, happy and fulfilling life.

Welcome back to Your Library

It has been fantastic to welcome so many of you back to our libraries as our phased re-opening began in July.

We re-introduced item requests from Thursday 1st October.

We also have ‘Grab and Go’ so you can pick up a pre-selected ‘lucky dip’ bag of books from your library.

You are still able to ‘Order and Collect’ titles as well.

You are welcome to browse in our libraries - our library colleagues will support you with this when you visit.

Stoptober is back and there’s never been a better time to quit smoking.

As we all know, smoking has an adverse effect on your breathing, circulation, heart and lung health, appearance and energy levels – not to mention your bank balance. The average smoker spends £4,000 a year on their habit!  

Since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic over 1 million people have stopped smoking – and you can too.
