Older People’s Community Outreach Service

The Community Outreach Service for older people supports vulnerable people who live in their own home or private and social rented properties (other than sheltered housing), but might need some extra help to live full and active lives in their communities.

The support service is free to use for up to two years. Trained staff or volunteers visit older people in their own homes and provide them with help and advice on areas which can become more difficult in older age. These could include personal safety and security, managing finances, using health or legal services, social or community activities, making adaptations to their home and measures to reduce the risk of falls at home.
