This is a new service to provide information, advice and support to older people on housing and housing related issues
Who is it for?
The project is particularly aimed at people who might be starting to find things a struggle in their homes, and want to consider their options as their needs change. These options might include, for example, moving to more suitable accommodation or making changes to their existing property.
The aim of the project is to encourage people to think ahead about their longer-term housing situation, and make informed decisions to ensure that they can stay as independent as possible.
