Supportive Communities: 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.
