Leicester Ageing Together Programme

Description

Leicester Ageing Together supports older people who are at risk of social isolation and loneliness to lead more fulfilling lives. 

So that 

  • Older people are less isolated 
  • Older people are actively involved in their communities 
  • Older people are more engaged in the design and delivery of services that help reduce their isolation 
  • Services are better planned, co-ordinated and delivered
  • Better evidence is available to help reduce isolation for older people in the future 

Working in conjunction with older people, the City Council and Health partners, our local programme, called Leicester Ageing Together, consists of 23 projects that will be delivered by 16 delivery partners. These projects include Men in Sheds, Community Navigators, Social Prescribing, Inter-generational projects, and Financial Well-being among others. They present opportunities for people to come together, to design their own services and to reengage with their communities.

Projects will be focused on five wards Belgrave, Evington, Thurncourt, Spinney Hills and Wycliffe selected through the prevalence of risk factors associated with social isolation which had been identified by older people. There will also be city wide delivery to older people with hearing loss, African Caribbean older people, older people who find it difficult to leave their homes and those returning home from hospital.
