Action Hampshire

Older and Vulnerable Adults

Older And Vulnerable Adults

Basingstoke Voluntary Action are working with Hampshire County Council, Rushmoor Voluntary Services, Hart Voluntary Action, Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council plus Age Concern to support Groups and Organisations working with Older and Vulnerable Adults. This is an opportunity for groups to discuss any issues, receive and share advice and guidance, network and raise the profiles of groups involved. There is no intention to duplicate existing forums but compliment and promote where applicable.

This initiative is in its early stages but plans are to interact with various organisations and other forums, identify what services are on offer, identify gaps in provision, try to work better together, avoid duplication or confusion and promote services and information wherever possible. Issues to be considered are getting more people to utilise services, gain required volunteers, identify required training, transport and funding plus publicise available provision and encourage networking.

In the interim, below are various organisations related to Older and Vulnerable Adults and this will be enhanced over the coming months. Other local organisations are available via the “Find Local Organisations” search on the left.
