Prevention service description

The initiative supports wellbeing by connecting and signposting residents to appropriate services and sources of support, and by coordinating these to ensure that they are accessible to the whole community. By fostering these connections between local residents and service providers, the initiative aims to embed health and wellbeing activities into daily life in the village and mitigate against the risks of isolation and loneliness that can be a feature of older people’s lives in rural areas.

The programme was launched in response to the changing demography of the village. Of particular concern were statistics sourced from Public Health England showing that 10% of local pensioners were living in poverty and that one third were living alone; 15% of the over 65 population were providing unpaid care and a significant number of homes in the area were over 30 minutes away from a hospital (by public transport).

Target client group(s):
