Befriending

 

For many years, Ashfield Voluntary Action provided a flexible and tailored wrap-around service to meet the needs of older members in our community through the Lifestyles project. This innovative and flexible project especially targeted those who were at risk of falls or social isolation. Sadly, whilst this project was funded by Mansfield and Ashfield Clinical Commissioning Group for a number of the years, they decided not to continue funding the project.

 

OUR RESPONSE

 

We believe that this vital service provided invaluable support to residents of Ashfield and Mansfield and have worked hard to secure funding for its continuation. Whilst this has been a challenge, it has given us the opportunity to re-develop the service so that it is more flexible and responsive than previously, reaching out to the community with a much wider range of support. Not only are we going to extend the scope of the project, but we are also going to extend access, so that any adult can use the service and not just those who are aged 50 and over. 

 

We are still in the process of planning and scoping out the service, but we will update our website regularly as the project details are finalised.
