About the project:

The aim of the project is to support Older but not overlooked people as part of the Social and Community Inclusion Project which supports older people from the community; older people who are living in residential care; older people living in supported housing. We have over 23 years history of supporting people in the community by having accessible services through the Phoenix Community Centre. We support some of the older vulnerable people in Gloucester. It runs with an open, accessible service that currently support 58 people older and/or with additional needs/ability. We have four Care Homes who access our inclusive services which enable them to continue to be a part of our wider safer community. We want to put into place someone who cannot the people who visit us at the Centre and do the community connecting to oversee the development of this venture where older people are at the heart of our work and it gives them space to have new opportunities to take forward what their needs are and co-produce this with our community worker.
