Senior Forum

Supporting the community.

On the 30th September 2014, The Congleton Partnership invited a range of service providers and organisations with special interest in older and harder to reach residents with a view to pulling together a forum to look at the gaps in provision and tackle ways of improving the needs of this group within the community.

 

Organisations represented at this first meeting were:

Cheshire Action, Citizens Advice Bureau, Cheshire East Community Services, Shop Mobility, Friends in Retirement, New Life Church, CVS Cheshire East, U3A, Bromley Farm Trust, Carers Trust 4 All and Congleton Partnership. They were later joined by AgeUK Cheshire East, Congleton Disabled Club, Plus Dane, LOL, Disability Together & Team Parish.

The group meets 4 times a year to look at ways of improving social isolation, health & wellbeing and generally support our older residents.

Recent projects have been:-

Annual Health & Wellbeing Fayre

Bob’s blog as a way to communicate with residents

A series of I-Tea and Chat sessions to improve communications and use of technology

The launch of the Dementia Friendly Congleton initiative.
