“The information you gave me was most illuminating - thank you” – Mrs C
"You are a fountain of knowledge"
“The Community Outreach Service is particularly valued in promoting independence and allowing individuals to choose the most suitable support to meet their needs while offering a holistic assessment to the service user” Social Worker
This is a free and confidential service for older people living in Rushcliffe to help them remain safe, happy and healthy in their own homes.
The Community Outreach Advisor (COA) is able to visit you at home and talk with you about what help and support you feel you need. Alternatively, the Advisor can phone you or send out information by post. We began offering this service in 2007 (funded through Nottinghamshire County Council) and have developed a good understanding of some of the issues facing older people, and a sound knowledge of services and groups that exist to support them.
Whether it is information or advice on getting help with transport, your pension and benefits, housing, adaptations to your home or what local groups and clubs exist, or any other query the Community Outreach Advisor will try to put you in touch with the right help and support.
