Postal workers are trained to make short visits to residents which involve conversations covering health and social wellbeing topics. The service links residents with health social care and voluntary sector providers whilst also preventing social isolation.
Age UK Sutton
One Voice for Age was founded, in 2002, to ensure that the views of older people in Sutton, were represented and heard, and, in turn, that these voices aid the review of existing services and influence the development of services for older people
The initiative relies on a strong base of 40 – 50 volunteers (or members as the project calls them) who are trained to interview other older people. Some of these older people may be isolated due to ill health or disability and, without this active involvement and outreach, would not usually have their voice heard. These interactions are then applied in order to campaign on behalf of older people and represent their views to local policy and decision makers.
Originally run as a pilot, Community Circles began in 2012 and are now located throughout the UK providing support in the community, by the community, helping people to achieve their goals in a way and place that suits them – from living rooms to care homes.
