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.
As time has gone on more emphasis has been put behind Dementia and Social Isolation and a new group Dementia Friendly Congleton was set which included many of the original members of this forum (see Dementia Friendly Congleton page).
The Senior Forum now has a small group responsible for organising the annual Community Wellbeing Fayre, now in its fourth year. This has proved a very successful and enjoyable event with more residents attending year on year.
